The Artist Profession – Artist Careers

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Artists create art through various mediums, including oil, watercolor, collage materials, acrylics, pastels, pen and ink, computers, and blocks and rollers. Some artists create work for organizations such as book publishers, graphic design firms, and advertising agencies, while fine artists often work for themselves and sell their art in galleries, as well as at craft and art shows. Art can be realistic, or it can be abstract. Some artists specialize in a particular medium, such as oils or pastels, while others dabble in a wider variety of media.

Some artists develop their skills through bachelor’s degree programs or other specific training in art and design, while others are mostly self-taught. While formal schooling is not necessary, it does help artistic professionals hone their craft. Graphic artists, in particular, generally require schooling or specific coursework in order to work in the field of graphic design.
