How do I decide what career to choose?
I'm a senior in high school and am interested in art and the medical field. I l have always had a passion for art but lately I've been thinking about a career that helps people like in the medical field. I've taken a medical anatomy class before but I wasn't too good at it so I've had it in my mind that I will just be an art teacher. But with high school coming to an end I'm afraid of not making the right decision. #art #medical #art-education
Should I go to art school?
I'm a senior trying to decide on a path in life, and art is something i'm interested in.

What is the best program to learn how to draw digitally?
I want to be a concept artist/illustrator, and I have little digital art skills. I want to use Procreate, since I've used it before and it's the most accessible for me. But I was wondering if programs like Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint are better. #art #artist #art-education #the-arts #digital-art #concept-artist #illustrator #arts #painting #artists
Are there places to work as an art teacher for mentally challenged children and adults?
I am a sophomore in high school and ever since I was a little girl I have loved art and making art pieces in school and out of school. I would love to help mentally challenged with their art work. #arts #art-education
Should I go to an art college?
Hello, I was wondering if you think it would be beneficial for me to go to an art college? As of right now, I am traditional artist, taking classes at community college, who has an interest in learning more about digital art because of the many opportunities available for people who can create art on a computerized format as opposed to the traditional pencil to paper approach. My only concern is that art colleges are expensive and I also wonder if they are really necessary for improving skills and knowledge because in this day and age the internet provides artists with nearly infinite amount of information about art related subjects. If you do, however, believe that attending art college would help my situation then what kind of art colleges would you recommend for someone who is interested in digital art and what kind of career fields would be open for that kind of an artist? I look forward to hearing your responses and thank you. #higher-education #artist #art-college #career-planning #digital-art #art-education #art-and-illustration #digital-artist

What is it like to teach high school kids?
I am on my way to becoming a teacher and am currently debating which age group I would like to focus on or work with specifically. If anyone has experience with multiple age groups and can share any thoughts that would be great! #education #art #high-school-classes #elementary-education #art-education
Career in art education... Worth it?
My art teacher keeps telling me that one day I will also become an art teacher. I've always been set on editing, but I had always thrown around his idea as well and now that he mentions seeing it in me, I'm more seriously considering it. It would also be an option that would be flexible enough for me to not have to sacrifice having a family, and is available almost anywhere. However, I worry if it really will be everywhere with the downfall of arts funding in many public schools. I also know that many teachers have spoken to me about how a career in education is not as stable and supportive as it once was, with a small salary and the inevitable cutting of benefits as funding lessens. I guess I'm just wondering what the outlook for that type of career would be in the future. #education #art #art-education #financial-planning #career-details
What is the greatest lesson you have learned from your students? How have your students made teaching art worthwhile?
Over the course of my high school career I have had the pleasure of being taught by two amazing art teachers. They both have inspired me to become an art teacher myself. I have learned so much about the world as well as my own self and now I would like to know how we, the students, have inspired them as well. #art-education
