Art Degree Programs

Everyone has heard the term "starving artist." This comes from the myth that it is impossible to make a living through being creative. With the help of art education, this myth is no longer a reality. Art schools exist to encourage and nurture students' creative talents. Everyone has creative talent to some degree; art school brings out those talents, makes them stronger, and turns them into something marketable. Not only is art school a fun and rewarding experience, it allows you to transform a passion into a profession.

While studying for an art school degree, students are faced with real life situations that they will meet when building their career. Art school students complete projects and portfolios similar to those, which could possibly be asked of them by their perspective employers. These challenges, along with other hands on projects, provide excellent practice to prepare for real challenges. Employers in creative fields are looking for applicants that have completed formal training, as well as a substantial body of work. By attending art school, you receive credentials and graduate with a portfolio of completed projects and samples that will impress your future employers.

There is an aspect of art and creative work that could appeal to anyone. There is a place in art school for any type of personality. Art school prepares students for careers in music, theater, visual arts, ceramics, drawing, fashion, design, and photography, just to name a few. Some graduates of art school move on to create their own businesses selling hand made work or crafts. There are few careers as rewarding as supporting yourself from products you've crafted from your own hands.

Many individuals are choosing the path of creating, editing, or animating for film, TV, or the Internet. There is a vastly growing need for graphic and digital designers who can create innovative artwork for online media and video games. For those interested in the fine arts, completing an art degree can bring artistic skills up to the level of being showcased and sold in art galleries. Many artistically inclined people have the potential to thrive in these careers, but they need the focus and the direction of art school to strengthen the talents until they are ready for the professional level.

The key to being successful at a career is to be happy. The secret to being wildly successful is doing what you love, loving what you do, and always striving to be the best. Do not ignore your passions simply because they are artistic. If there is a creative skill that you genuinely love to use, you will enjoy working on it, studying, and improving. The passion that you feel toward your artistic endeavors will allow you to succeed academically and that background will allow for professional success.

Creative job positions are highly coveted, and therefore highly competitive. Having formal training and education in the arts will significantly improve your ability to become employable and marketable. By pursuing arts education, you will also have better access to the right career opportunities. Following your creative passions no longer has to be just a dream; with a degree from a reputable art school, it can be your reality. Find your art school below.
