what is a good paying art field that's not to0 stressful?

Where should i start in my career path? I've gotten into my college of choice though I'm worried I won't like it

Thank you comment icon This is a normal feeling. Many people change their major in college and even change careers later in life. I would highly recommend taking a variety of classes in your first year of college, exposing yourself to different subject areas and career options. Your college should have a career services department. Sit down with someone there, talk about your interests and ask for recommended classes to take. If you have a professor that you click with, ask them to be your mentor. They may have connections to internships, job shadows and other professionals that can help guide you on your career journey.

Thank you comment icon Adding on to what Kaitlynn has mentioned, I would also try to see if there are any local people in the art field where you are that could help guide you. Sometimes it is better to actually ask people who are directly in your field of interest to see and hear first hand what that occupation is like. If you can't find anybody like that in your community, you could always try expanded the search to online. Brandon Dang

Anthony’s Answer

The art field is not that stressful.
I have done Production Assistant work and that was extremely long hours some days.
Try to work at your local playhouse/ theater.
Get in wherever you can and keep building from that position.
Have fun wherever you are working.
Work does not have to be stressful.
It can be fun. Have fun while working.

The biggest fear for college students is not liking their major. You CAN change your major and still graduate in time. Make sure you choose a minor that interests you. You can combine an interest in art with technology or marketing Make sure you start visiting your career center early and often to find a great internship or alumni connection to help you refine your goals

Jane S.’s Answer

Art but low stress? I can’t think of anything that is LOW stress, because in any field of you are going to be successful, there is going to be some competition. But here are some ideas:

Work at a gallery (it will start with small tasks which will gradually get greater with responsibility)
Work at an art supply store
Begin working at an auction house, selling fine art
Teach art (choose elementary, middle, or high school levels
Work in a design studio
Restore art

There ought to be apprenticeships in all these areas. Talk to an art dealer, gallerist, or restoration worker to get some additional ideas and learn about apprenticing for a specialist. Good luck!
