I think that's my biggest high school regret. I didn't take welding. Stupid, stupid, stupid. hiccup can weld. Makes me feel like less of a man. 

 
One of my first girlfriends dumped me, dropped out of school, and became a welder. I took a couple of lessons from the sculpture teacher at uni - mainly because it scared the shit out of me. I was useless at the welding part but the cutting torch was a blast. Served me well when I did experiments in grad school where I had to seal powder in quartz tubing using a hydrogen-oxygen torch while pulling a vacuum on it. Makes you jump when you inadvertently melt through the tube and the flame gets sucked up the rubber hose you are holding.

You can get little wire-feed welders for next to nothing if you watch the classifieds; I keep thinking I'll get one and build a something-something. Actually I want 3-legged patio furniture because our patio is uneven. Too tricky to do out of wood, but steel would be quick.

 
They're like $80 at Harbor Freight, and I've been tempted plenty of times. I actually borrowed the father-in-law's little buzzbox rig years ago when I was doing some bodywork on the Subaru. Managed to make a rust-free front fender out of two well-ventilated donors, but the backside welds were not pretty. One of these days, when I have some time I'll try again.

Mostly it's because she could teach the class or ask me and I'll tell her how and save a bunch of time.

I have a couple of friends who are welders/metal workers; they both make pretty good livings at it .  Almost all of their work is commercial, not residential, except for the occasional wrought iron stairway or railings.  I think part of the reason they do pretty well is that there aren't many welders around this county compared to other tradesmen - even compared to other certified tradesmen like electricians and plumbers.

I took a simple Graphic Design for Broadcast back in college. How to use letterpress on black crescent board to create titles for shows, etc. Looooong time ago - before Chyron, et.al.
Flash forward and I spend a good 3+ hours a day in Photoshop trying to create (replicate?) what real, true graphic artists should be doing because my company decided to cut costs by eliminating the free Creative Services department and forcing us to going to the already over-worked in-station on-air designers or the profit center paid department. And since no-one wants to pay....

She has 3 electives and is taking Art2, Spanish3, and Computer Science 1. That's supposed to be coding. If it's "how to use PowerPoint," I'm yanking her out and sticking her in welding. Welding's her alternate anyway, if she can't get her electives.

Well here anyway. Tradies do pretty well in Australia. Or as one of the comedians said, "I want my kid to have a prestige job. You know something in high-vis."

COMPUTER GRAPHICS 1

Grade 9-12 Semester Course Credit: .5 Credit for Graduation: Career Technical Education OR Fine Arts

If you've always pictured yourself as a commercial artist but your drawing style is closer to stick figures than Cézanne, then graphic design might be just the business for you. With the great software available today, you can conjure up logos, letterheads, brochures, product packaging, mail order catalogs, print advertisements, magazine covers, movie posters, flyers, collages, montages, newsletters and cards —just about anything that needs a distinctive graphic ambience for the business client. Computer Graphics is a course designed to teach you the basic tools and techniques of Adobe Photoshop. Students will also be introduced to beginning photography with an emphasis on theories, tools and practices of digital imaging and the hardware and software used with this medium. Students will become familiar with the digital camera, scanners, scanning and file formats, image editing programs, printers and related materials and accessories. E-commerce applications will be discussed as design work is properly formatted for use on the Web. You will learn the proper formats and file types used in graphic design and how to properly find and save graphics from the Internet to use in your design work.
