Practical Arts

Practical Arts is available to students under two areas of study-Family and Consumer Science and Technology Education. The variety of courses increase student learning in "hands-on" class lab situations. The courses in Practical Arts help students to make connections between their learning and personal/ career choices. Once the .5 credit graduation requirement is met, students have a wide-variety of elective options where practical skills are learned and can be used throughout their adult lives.

In this class students work with copper, brass, and real sterling silver to create rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more.

Students learn about architectural styles, design, and engineering through hands-on work with drafting tools, AutoCAD computer design software, and scale model construction.

Students create living spaces using design and decorating concepts. A practical skills unit using fabrics, tile, wall paper and wood will give students experience with home design materials.
