Doc’s Answer

People have been creating art for centuries Anaaa. I imagine it will be around another century or two.

Forward-thinking creative individuals who are considering what career path to pursue may be interested in reviewing options that will enjoy high demand in the future. Creative options that I think will experience the highest job growth problem will involve technology in some way. There are many different types of careers in art and design. When you consider different type of careers in art that are appealing, identify your special talents and match them with the types of careers that fit your lifestyle and budgetary needs. Many artists are self-employed, so be ready to exercise your business skills, along with your artistic abilities.

Multimedia Artists and Animators
Multimedia artists and animators are very versatile in the applications of their artwork, which may contribute to their job stability. This field has as fast as average expected job growth These artists and animators create a wide variety of visual effects and animations for different forms of media, like television, video games, and movies.

They may select furnishings, lighting, flooring, and more to create a specific style and look, all while staying within their provided timeline and budget. Interior designers will also ensure that their client is satisfied with the finished project. These professionals need a bachelor's degree in the field.

Gloria’s Answer

Art is always going to have a place in the world. The question that I would have for you is - how flexible are you about how you make your art? Do you want something tangible - some that can be held in a human hand - or digital? Others who have posted here have mentioned jobs like Architecture which is an incredible tangible art. I think that the growing field is actually in digital. I am an instructional designer and in my field, some of the best and most challenging jobs in the Digital Arts lie around Graphic Design and Animation spaces. The roles only seem to be increasing and talented artists in these areas can make a very good living. And you do not need to work for a marketing firm or an animation studio to do these roles. I work in a Learning and Development organization within my company and we have several people adding their valuable skills to help people learn how to do their jobs. I believe that these job roles can be found in a variety of industries. You can find many ways to be artistic. So I would say as you continue to create your art, add the digital piece. I have a friend who had to teach herself how to draw digitally on a computer. She still prefers the feel of "pen" in her hand and yet the work that she had done on a device is so much faster than the paintings that she can create. Study a variety of artistic endeavors and consider very carefully how you can make art in a digital space. and let those things guide you to the job you want. Stable will come with finding what you want to do and how to do it.

There are lots! Look into fields such as User Experience Design (UX design), User Interface Design (UI Design), Graphic Design (could have sub-specialties/labels such as Print, Web, or Digital designer), Motion Graphics Designer, and Interactive Designer... just to name a few! Other creative fields could also include fashion design and interior design.

Pamela recommends the following next steps:

Look at schools in your area/that you could be interested in, and see what creative degrees they offer
Look at websites such as Indeed or Glassdoor, to see what types of creative positions companies are currently in need of

Clarissa’s Answer

There are many jobs that require creativity and art broadly, such as marketing and graphic design. However, if you are looking for a career focused on the more traditional definition of art, one good career would be museum curating. The responsibilities of this job include acquiring art for the museum, deciding how to display art in collections and researching objects. It is essentially a job where you are managing the art in a museum and allows you to see and handle art from all around the world.

Maybe not a ton of money but it still fuels your passion for art while be able to maintain a good level of income. I've met a couple people who are or graduated in Graphic Design and I have also suggested this career path for any of my friends who are considering what they should major in. I hope this helps!

Taylor’s Answer

If you are a strategic thinker and love talking to people, I'd consider a career in Sales!

Sales is one of those careers that has very high salary and growth potential for those who really take the time to learn the role. It also provides a lot of flexibility giving you the opportunity to work anywhere in the world, for any industry, and tailor your sales career based on your lifestyle wants and needs.

Sales is one of those careers that is rarely taught in school, so a lot of people consider it a secondary option, but rarely a first! "Sales skills" is not only a skill that you can develop to have a career in that field, but "sales skills" also provide you with additional skills that can help in your personal life (negotiation skills, communication skills, critical thinking, time management...).
