New York City's Graphics Industry
Volunteers Help Graphics Teachers Teach and Graphics Students Learn ... and Grow

We're the Graphics Industry Advisory Commission, an all-volunteer group of executives, academics, vendors, employers and analysts that works to keep New York's schools up-to-date with the exciting changes affecting the digital graphics industry and the expanding opportunities for skilled careers in the field.

New York's Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers offer a wide range of relevant and engaging graphics subjects including digital and offset printing, desktop publishing and design, digital photography and image manipulation, presentation graphics, digital video and multimedia animation, and electronic content management. We support their work in six important ways.

CURRICULUM REVIEW

Domain experts from the Commission advise schools on current and developing topics and trends, review technology and process needs, and help prepare curricula for New York State Board of Education CTE certification.

TEACHER TRAINING

We produce Graphics Teachers Technology Conferences, important professional development events that network classroom teachers with peers, industry experts and innovators -- free-of-charge to teachers.

CITYWIDE COMPETITION

Now in its ninth year, the Citywide Graphic Arts Competition held at CUNY's College of Technology is an inspiring event that focuses students energies and efforts on creating competitive graphics in five categories.

SCHOLARSHIPS FOR COLLEGE

Our affiliate, the Graphic Arts Scholarship, Award and Career Advancement Foundation, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that funds dozens of scholarships each year for graphics students at colleges and universities like Parsons, Pratt, SVA, SUNY, CUNY and the Rhode Island School of Design.

MENTORING, INTERNSHIPS AND JOBS

Our members offer mentoring and internship positions to students as well as externships to teachers. Our Graphic Communications Jobs Board provides seasonal, part-time and internship opportunities as well as full-time employment listings.

ADVOCACY

Commissioners advocate for Career and Technical Education programs in the midst of the constant reforms of the city’s school system, emphasizing practical school-to-work approaches and forward-looking Digital Age education strategies.

 

Please join us. This work is important, the students and the teachers are terrific, the Commission members are enthusiastic and committed. If you're a teacher, get connected. If you're an industry professional, get involved.
