Art metal-work Study and teaching, Secondary education Curricula.


In a General Metal Shop, Art Metalwork is one of the activities used to round out a general study of the metals field. That it is a valid subject to be taught in this field of activity is shown by the fact that Art Metalwork is included as a center of activity in a number of state studies in the Industrial Arts curriculum. The Pennsylvania state study of Industrial Arts lists Art Metalwork as a center of activity in the Metals area. The Connecticut state study in Industrial Arts lists Art Metal under General Metalwork. The New York state course for Industrial Arts also includes Art Metalwork as a center of activity in General Metalwork.
