Home Economics, also known as family and consumer science, is a subject concerning cooking, nutrition, housekeeping, personal finance, personal wellness, and consumer issues. in the past, it was mainly just about cooking and housework.
Home Economics courses are offered around the world and across multiple educational levels.

There are several career paths studying Home Economics and its related elective subjects. These include professional catering services, hospitality services, nursing, etc.

The visual arts create works that are primarily visual in nature, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, film making, and architecture. These definitions should not be taken too strictly as many artistic disciplines (performing arts, conceptual art, textile arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types.
With the use of the computer and software, visual arts has extended the set of tools available to students to be more creative. The application of the computer extends the course to cover applied arts such as industrial design, graphic design, fashion design, interior design, and decorative art.
The current usage of the term "visual arts" includes fine art as well as the applied, decorative arts and crafts, but this was not always the case.
Visual Arts as a senior high school course has several elective combinations depending on each school's capacity and resources.
