About Arts, Information and Communications

  • Photo montage of arts-related activities

    The Arts, Information and Communications career learning area includes a wide range of career clusters that involve the creation or transmissions of information through the manipulation of a symbolic language. There is an emphasis on process and the concepts of creativity, integrity and aesthetic awareness. A product is usually associated with that process, but it is the process that retains primary importance.
