How is art and interior design connected? What are the other careers that connect with art and how?

I'm trying to figure out what careers are connected with art and how they are. I have an assignment for class and I enjoy art and decorating, but I would also like to learn what other careers have to do with art.

Hi Brianna
Art is all around us, and many people don't realize it. So, here we go with just a few art careers from the comfort of your home.

Graphic designers are responsible for this website, the signs you see when you go shopping at the mall, along with the design of your toothpaste tube and cereal box, and any other objects with words on them. All the books and magazines you have at home were created with the help of book designers. Your clothes and accessories are the product of fashion designers. Interior designers are responsible for how the insides of stores and businesses, and maybe even your home look; they choose the color scheme, the furniture, the flooring, the window treatments, the lighting and so on. Industrial or Product Designers design the shape of your shampoo bottle, your cellphone, your family's car, and other stuff you don't even think about. There are even artists who create the patterns you see in textiles (like curtains, rugs, tablecloths) and on your clothing. And don't forget the house or building you are in right now, an architect designed that. How about going to the movies or to a play? There you'll see the work of set designers, lighting designers, costume designers, make-up artists, special effects artists, and so on. I hope you get the idea that art is everywhere! And these are not all! There are also art-related careers in museums, like exhibit designers and curators, and in education. (I'm a retired art teacher).

So, for your assignment, I suggest you go to the library or go online and research some of the following: Graphic Designer, Interior Designer, Fashion Designer, Product Designer, Industrial Designer, Pattern/Fabric Designer, Theater/Movie Set Designer, Costume Designer, Make-Up Artists, and Architect. Don't be shy about asking the librarian in your school library or community library for help on books or websites, they love helping people find things out.

Christine’s Answer

Art is in a lot of careers, some more than others. Interior design uses art pieces as inspiration for an entire room and also uses furniture and other things like color palettes to express a mood or style.
Other careers with art as a central theme: architecture, design (automotive comes to mind but just about any area has this element) marketing, animation, graphic design, theatre, …..etc

Pam’s Answer

Art careers are divided into two major categories, Fine Art and Applied Art. Some examples of work that fine artist would do are drawing, painting, photography and sculpting. Some examples of work that applied artist would do are fashion, graphic, industrial or interior design. Applied artists are creating products that people use everyday using their artistic talents. While Fine artists are creating works of art that a client has commissioned them to create or to sell in an online or physical gallery.

Students studying either fine or applied arts will study the Elements and Principles of Art & Design. Do some research on these. There are many of them that you would study thoroughly to help with your experimentation as you create. Some examples of the Elements and Principles are:
- color theory
- line (1D), shape (2D) and form (3D)
- texture
- mass
- proportion and scale
- focal point
- rhythm

Look into both some community and 4-year colleges to see what programs of study they have in art and design. Many of them will also have some career options you could seek after attaining certain degrees. That may give you a better idea of the options you are most interested in.
