You’re creative. You love to draw, paint, sculpt, write, take pictures, or design. But what does it take to have a career as an artist? There are a multitude of career options available for people with an interest in art. Artists can typically be categorized into four groups:

  • Art Directors: Art directors develop design concepts for media pieces and oversee the entire creation and production process.
  • Craft Artists: Craft artists hand-make objects, such as candles, tapestries, quilts, and pottery, to be sold or shown.
  • Fine Artists: Fine artists create items such as paintings, sculpture, photographs, and illustrations that are often displayed in museums and galleries.
  • Multimedia Artists: Multimedia artists create images for film, video and other forms of electronic media.

Richland offers career and transfer options in all of these categories, depending on student interest.
