Glenn’s Answer

I would say industrial design would use a mix of both Art and stem. Britannica defines industrial design as ..." the design of mass-produced consumer products. Industrial designers, often trained as architects or other visual arts professionals, are usually part of a larger creative team. Their primary responsibility is to help produce manufactured items that not only work well but please the eye and, therefore, have a competitive advantage over similar products. The work of an industrial designer often relates to or includes graphic design, such as advertising and packaging, corporate imagery and branding, and interior design (also called interior architecture or environmental design), the arrangement of man-made spaces. "
I daughter boyfriend is an industrial design major in university. He has had a diverse field of study with physics and calculus, with many art and drawing classes mixed in.

Hey Ashley! This is a great question, with so many answers! If you have an interest in art and a background in STEM, you can spin that into so many viable career paths! Graphic design can be applied to careers like web site design, advertising and marketing, UI design, and even designing levels or characters or weapons/armor for video games. Architecture also takes a high level of artistic talent as well as understand of engineering principles, so you could be designing to next generation of skyscrapers or smart buildings!

You can also work directly with the art world, creating digital art or getting involved in curation and gallery showings. NFTs are becoming big now and might be a good thing to explore and understand (but be careful!). Technology is always growing and changing as well, so you can stay on the leading edge by keeping up with new technology or working on ways to make the art world better through new tech.

Good luck and keep at it, you'll find a ton of ways to meld these two world together!

KENNETH’s Answer

Really great question. Now more than ever, the avenue is open for art and STEM marriage. My daughter has been able to do just that. She is an animation major at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. She has been able to use her love for art to combine 3d technology for creating animations which have been used for not only short films, but also to work with the following:
Public Health organizations for Health Awareness
Hospitals Systems for their website development
Design for auto systems for companies like Tesla and Ford

So to really be clear, we live in a day and age where art and STEM is not only available, but necessary in almost every field.

Taylor’s Answer

Making video games is a great way to combine a love of coding with a love of art. You can use your art skills to build assets for your games and then use your programming skills to implement them. There are plenty of platforms out there to help build games (Itch.io, Unity, etc.) so there's always a place to start.

James’s Answer

Great question. One less obvious answer is technology consulting or consulting in a STEM related field. I like to think that as a consultant I need to use both quantitative and qualitative skills. In general, as a consultant I need to be able to understand and analyze data, develop a point of view, and then effectively communicate recommendations to companies. Consulting is a great way to grow both skill sets.

A new field which is making strides is NFTs / metaverse - big tech companies like Facebook (now Meta) and Apple are investing heavily. Venture capitalists have been investing heavily in web3 / metaverse as well - and NFTs will be an important part of the ecosystem. It's a very new industry, but could be game-changing, and it requires both art-related skills as well as technology skills to flourish. Younger people are positioned to thrive in this new industry.

Possible occupations include being an animator to show different scientific processes and pathways. A 3-D modeler can also accomplish this.
Graphic designers and video game designers also use mathematics to portray various designs.
