February is Career and Technical Education Month, a public awareness campaign that takes place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country. To help Sulphur Springs High School celebrate CTE Month, KSST’s high school interns have compiled short videos featuring a few of the CTE programs offered at SSHS. One will be featured each week during CTE Month.
Design and Multimedia Arts
KSST intern Jamie Cervantes interviewed Graphic Design I and Advanced Graphic Design teacher Megan Tingle in her classroom to learn more about the Design and Multimedia Arts program offered at SSHS.
These courses feature many hands-on projects which the students learn to take from concept to finished product, including creating graphic designs for t-shirts, logos, event posters and sticker production for actual clients in the community and social media. They are currently working on a print shop to be able to produce their designs.
Students are able to utilize the creative and creation skills they learn in the graphic design classes to aid them in other classes, to build portfolios and obtain internships. Tingle even has a team of students who create the yearbook each year.
