Hello Abigail!

There's many pathways in art and animal care fields. The type of education you need depends on what you specifically dream to do in these areas.

To discover art careers, I recommend checking out these notes:

To discover animal careers, I recommend checking out these articles:
https://tinyurl.com/vet-roles-img
https://devotedtoanimals.com/21-best-careers-for-animal-lovers-a-z/

A good thing is: Most of these jobs don't require a degree!

Read over these lists. Spend time looking up roles that interests you.
Then, start off with getting either volunteer experience or doing fun projects to learn the skills you need.

Learning through doing is the best way to figure out if a career would fit you.

Once you volunteered or made enough projects, you could get a job, start your own business, or take classes at a 2-year (or four-year) school.

Lastly, there's no reason why you have to choose art OR animals --- One over the other.
You could do both! :D

It's up to you, your determination, and your time-management skills (Some people have 2 jobs where they doing one field and another field that interests them)

Don't limit yourself and explore these resources ^^

Sending you good luck with finding a path that works for you :)

Hello! It's fantastic to see you have such a diverse range of interests. Why not explore the different job opportunities available in each area that excites you? Look into the qualifications required for these roles. This will guide you in identifying which majors could help you achieve your dreams. Once you've done that, you can start pinpointing schools that provide the majors you're interested in. You're on a great path, keep going!

Adisthy Dinda’s Answer

hi thank you for your question, thats interesting. You are good at knowing your interests for the next level. With conditions like this I can give input, you can think again, okey? But what type of art do you like? well, if you like digital art, you can choose Visual Communication Design, where you can learn from basic to professional. So, in this case, you can develop your creative ideas through digital designs that you make yourself, such as logos, posters, animations, illustrations and much more. Which of course can be an advantage for you if you sell it. Of course with this design that you make, it is not only useful for you but also wider. You can also help animals that you like in different ways, such as social media campaigns through the designs you make, from illustrations and animations to help with care, for example, and also design a logo for an animal agency and many more. That's my input, hope it helps. Good luck Abigail!
Thank you comment icon Thanks for the advice. Abigail

Lucas’s Answer

You should go to a college that offers you a wide range of disciplines. It's hard to do everything at once, but hopefully picking a college where you can explore different things to narrow down your options. If you know you definitely don't want to be an engineer, don't go to an engineering college. Look up colleges known for things that sound interesting to you. Don't be afraid to branch out.

Emma’s Answer

I suggest looking at what the school has to offer first, say you want to go into nursing. Look for the top nursing schools in your state, in-state students pay less than out-of-state students. If you can't find one within the state that fits the budget, you may or may not have depending on a lot of variables, then look for out-of-state colleges. I recommend casting a wide net even if you think you won't get in, if you have a large number of schools there is a higher probability of you getting enrolled into your choice school. If you get into the college you want great, if not it is their loss and there is always going to be another college that would happily have you enrolled.

Emma recommends the following next steps:

Look into colleges with your ideal job/major, In-state first then out-of-state
Apply to several of those colleges
Wait to see which ones you got into
Talk with trusted people to help you figure out which school would be a better fit for you
Accept a college offer
