FOLLOW YOUR DREAM

The Commercial Art program at the Crawford County Career and Technical Center is a 2 year program that seeks to provide area students with the foundational skills that are required for dozens of occupations within the communication arts. It is now a requirement for future commercial designers to obtain a college degree within their chosen discipline. While it may be assumed that computer and technology skills are most important, this is actually anything but the truth.

 

Having a solid foundation in visual acuity as evidenced through drawing skills is what is most highly sought after by design schools and employers. The program focuses on attaining mastery in drawing, value study, composition, color theory, and creative thinking over dabbling in computer art. While students will gain valuable computer skills, often on a higher level than is taught at State University programs, the philosophy of our program is that computer skills are meaningless without the student approaching these tools as an artist.

 

Our success speaks for itself. Please take the time to look through the CA website and see if you don't agree that 2 years in this program is an uncommon opportunity for you to launch a career as visual communicator.

 

GROUNDED IN THE BASICS

A career in any of the Applied Arts requires, now more than ever, that a student have a strong grasp of the foundational skills in art. Being able to draw accurately from direct observation, understanding perspective, value, color theory and the basics of creativity are far more important on any level than computer skills. We draw. We learn to see.
