Welcome to Industrial Technical Arts
“Industrial Arts: Those phases of general education which deal with industry — its organization, materials, occupations, processes, and products — and with the problems of life resulting from the industrial and technological nature of society.”
—Gordon O. Wilbur
“Industrial arts is more than thing-making. It includes much in addition to tool-using. Though many enjoy using tools to make things, the value of the industrial arts shop is not limited to such enjoyments. The student should be forming, shaping, assembling and experimenting with ideas as well as with hand tools, materials, machines, and projects.”
—William J. Micheels
