Hey Xochitl!

There are a lot of things you can do related to the arts. I recommend exploring the US Board of Labor Statistics website's pages on:
Arts & Design - https://www.bls.gov/ooh/arts-and-design/home.htm
Architecture & Engineering - https://www.bls.gov/ooh/architecture-and-engineering/home.htm
Media & Communication - https://www.bls.gov/ooh/media-and-communication/home.htm
Education, Training & Library - https://www.bls.gov/ooh/education-training-and-library/home.htm

These pages won't cover every job, but give you a good idea of the type of degrees or training you need for different creative fields. The most obvious career paths are artist, illustrator, animator. But if you like a little bit of science or math, you might look into design, architecture, interior design, or drafting. If you're interested in teaching art, you could read about teaching K-12 art classes or post-secondary (college level) art. If you want to make things that people use or wear every day, maybe industrial or fashion design is for you. If you really like research, maybe art curation, museum studies, or art history could be your thing. There's also photography, videography, film making, and film editing. You have a lot of options!

Hi Xochitl
Good question, so many young people can only see computer animation or illustration, but there are lots and lots of careers in the Visual Arts.
Much of it depends on your interests, skills, and abilities in art. Are you more of a fine arts person, or do you enjoy graphic design? Do you enjoy fashion? Are you interested in the design of everyday items? Are you curious about the design of buildings? Do you enjoy looking at artworks? I've answered this question for students numerous times, and it always amazes me how much there is out there. However, getting a job and establishing a career in the visual arts is not easy, and you need to be prepared to work hard on your art portfolio, get a relevant art degree, be patient in looking for jobs or internships, and be ready to take advice and critiques from your teachers and supervisors and to follow through on that advice.

I often did an exercise with my students when we started a unit on careers in the visual arts. I would show them a picture of a movie theatre lobby, or a department store interior, or even the classroom, and I would tell them their assignment was to "Find the artists". Once they would start to really look and think about what they were looking at, they would discover that....... Everything they saw had been designed by an artist; all the printed images (graphic designers), the websites (website designers), the clothing (fashion designers), the furniture, (industrial designer) the textiles (fabric designer), the design of the computers and cellphones (product designer), the color scheme and arrangement of furnishing in the room (interior designers) and the building itself (architects). In addition, someone had to teach all these artists how to do their work, so you are also seeing art teachers at all levels, elementary school, middle school, high school, college and art school. This also doesn't mention the art careers in museums and galleries, nor careers in the rather new field of Art Therapy.

I hope you get the idea that there are lots of careers in the visual arts. The ones listed above are only a small number of what is out there. Previous answers have given you some websites to start, but I would also recommend you talk to your art teachers (if you can, due to the pandemic, I know this is not easy now). I would investigate any of the careers listed above that might interest you, and think how and if the artwork that you enjoy making would fit into that career. Be open minded at this point. But whatever career path you follow, make sure you become comfortable with computer graphic programs, all art careers use computers in some capacity.

Best wishes! Hope this helps!

hi there! visual arts is a huge field! some options that i’m not seeing having been mentioned are various product designers, industrial designers, furniture designers, jewelers, or ceramicists. each of these fields all have specific kinds of niches to be filled- it could take you some time to try to figure out where you want to be in your field and that’s okay! visual arts is a huge category and there are a ton of mediums to choose from!

in terms of the arts as a larger field there’s all sorts of opportunities. you could definitely look into museum studies, curatorial work, or conservation and preservation.
