Ron’s Answer

Dear Famina,
There are many options for employment related to art. I suggest you ask yourself the following:
What type of art do I like to do?
What am I good at?
Do I like to work alone or with others?
Do I want to help others directly through my art or just create and get paid?
Am I drawn to visual art by hand or computer?
The following are examples of different career options you might consider:
art therapist
illustrator
designer
teacher
free lance artist
display work
You might google each of these to get a better idea of what the position involves and what is expected. You might also volunteer to assist at a variety of businesses to see first hand and talk to others about their work and what they like or don't like about it.
Not knowing how old you are, I am not sure what is appropriate for you at your current age but you can do research and try different things before being hired so you have a better idea of what to go to school for in college, if that is what will help you move forward in a career.
Good luck, art is a wonderful way to fulfill your creative soul and express your inner self while bringing beauty to the lives of others.
