Bradford, Artist-ln-Schools,
Brings Creativity To The Area
Artists-in-Schools is a na
tionwide program coopera
tively sponsored by the North
Carolina Arts Council and the
National Endowment for the
Arts. The program places
professional artists in
residence in elementary and
secondary schools to serve as
educational and artistic
resources. Tom Bradford is
Tom Bradford
Artist-in-Schools for Chowan
county. Bradford sees his role
in Artist-in-Schools as “a split
responsibility of serving the
local community and
schools.” Specifically he
works locally with Chowan
Junior High School and
Ernest A. Swain school. His
studio is housed in Swain
School.
The aim of the program is
to give students and teachers
the opportunity to experience
the visual arts or crafts by
working with a professional,
producing artist in an in
school studio. Unlike an art
teacher, the artist is not view
ed as a member of the teach
ing staff, but rather as a prac
ticing artist working on his or
her art in a school setting.
Participants benefit by wat
ching, speaking, and working
with the artist while the artist
creates.
To successfully achieve
this, there must be an ade
quate secure studio that is
easily accessible to the
students during school hours
and to the artist at all times.
The artist must work with
students who meet often and
in small enough groups (core

groups) to assure in-depth
student contact and to do this
in an environment that allows
the artist to create while that
group is present. In addition,
the artist may meet with
some larger groups to give
demonstrations and presenta
tions of his work.
The pilot program at
Chowan Junior High involves
meeting with teachers in ad
vance to coordinate the cur
riculum. Quite often tangible
items such as maps, charts,
posters or murals are produc
ed which are easy for students
to relate to. Special students
actually help in painting some
art work and some special
items of art work is retained
in the school for students,
faculty and community to
enjoy.

tion? Vocational education is

ple for work. It is the

tion and training programs.

programs that offer instruc
tion in related basic educa
tion, career development,
general vocational
knowledge, improved family
living skills and
occupationally-specific
preparation.
What is the curriculum
like? The vocational cur
riculum is more complex than
the curriculum offered by
other segments of education
because it combines
classroom instruction,
laboratory work, participa
tion in student organizations
and on-the-job training. In ad
dition, vocational curriculum
must be updated more often
and more extensively than
other areas of the. school
curriculum.
Classroom instruction - Die
nature of vocational educa
tion calls for classroom cur
riculum that is centered on
real-life problems students
are likely to meet on the job
and in the home.
Laboratory work - Students
are given opportunities to
work with materials, equip
ment and processes of dif
ferent jobs in the supervised
atmosphere of the laboratory
setting. These laboratories
are as diverse as the farm
shop, the model office, the
electronics lab, the simulated
dental office or the child care
program.
Student Organizations -
Through 53,000 chapters of
eight vocational student
organizations, more than
1,650,000 students at secon
dary and postsecondary
levels are Involved in ac
tivities designed to develop
leadership skills and rein
force other aspects of the
curriculum.
On the job training -
Various work-site learning
experiences are vital parts of
