Welcome to MyTechnow.org - Wilson Tech - GRAPHIC ART SKILLS

GRAPHIC ART SKILLS is an exciting field in the area of computer generated art and design. Students will explore the field of graphic design by participating in real-life hands on design projects. In addition they will develop their design skills by using traditional art media and then transfer that knowledge to industry standard computer design programs. Outcomes include creating flyers, posters, t-shirts, key chains and other novelties on various printing and finishing equipment while learning the basics of art and design.



Individuals employed in the Graphic Arts Industry have many opportunities to gain success in a variety of occupations. Graphic Designers work in advertising agencies, publishing firms and print shops. Industry ready graphic designers should possess creativity, attention to detail, ability to meet deadlines and have knowledge of industry standard design programs.


Additional supplies will need to be purchased for this program including a uniform.

CTE Skill Programs follow the same curriculum as their respective CTE Program counter-parts, except at a moderate pace, in a smaller setting with extra support. Students will receive preparation for entry-level employment and/ or post-secondary education and are expected to function autonomously. Transfer into more advanced programs (CTE Programs) is contingent upon a student's success.

Employability Profiles will be utilized to evaluate students' universal foundation skills and work-based technical skills. Districts may utilize the Employability Profile as part of the criteria to meet the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Credentials and the CDOS Multiple Pathway option.

Our Career Assessment center, located at Wilson Tech's Huntington campus, evaluates students' career and academic strengths and weaknesses. The Career Scope is utilized as a Level 2 Assessment. A summary is derived from the students' responses and a list of appropriate career choices is presented.
