Careers in art

A career in art is not limited to being a painter. You’re creative. You love to draw, paint, sculpt, write, or design. But what does it take to have a career as an artist? What paths can or should you pursue, and how valid is the stereotype of the starving artist? Consider the areas where an artist’s work will involve. Photography, animation, film, landscape design, interior design, shop-window design, framing, textile and clothing design, furniture and lighting design, architecture, to mention just a few.

Here is a list of careers you can choose from. I bet you never know there are so many careers options to choose from.
