Constance’s Answer

Hi Isaiah,
So first of all there are many types of painting jobs, like paining houses or buildings, creating murals, ( a more artistic form), painting fences, painting lines on streets, painting everyday objects we use, or simply painting as an artist. Your question, “what is it like?”, really depends on the attitude of the person. The passion and individual’s outlook is the main driver of what doing anything is like. In other words, you get out what you put in.
Here are some of the skills required to be good at any type of painting…
• Time management skills – projects usually have a timeline and success is dependent upon meeting that timeline
• Being able to communicate effectively is crucial. You must be able to understand what your client wants and successfully show that through your work
• You must have attention to detail. Little mistakes could cost you your reputation
• You must be able to work with others.
• Having hand and arm strength is important
• You will need to be able to assemble scaffolds
• It is very important to have aesthetic sensibility. Some of your clients might not know exactly what they want and this skill will be important for you to successfully meet the clients expectations
• You must be able to actively listen
Isiah, I hope this helps as you consider a painting career. Best of luck!

Hi Isaiah,

We all express our creativity in the form of art. This art can have many forms. No matter what the form for this creative expression is, art makes you feel good. But art does more than just that – it is proved that art makes you happy and healthy too.

Below are the advanatges you see when you do it on a daily basis:
Strengthens Memory
Nurtures Emotional Growth
Provides Stress Relief
Promotes an Optimistic Attitude

While painting might not contribute much to physical fitness, the cognitive benefits to overall health are incredibly valuable.
Painting definitely builds strong mental health in individuals of every age.

Good luck!

HI Michelle, your answer is off topic. The hashtags used by the student show that they are looking for advice on painting as an artist, not an outdoor painter. Do you have any advice you can share on that topic? Gurpreet Lally
