Art as a career

Artists create works of art to communicate ideas, thoughts, or feelings.

Artists use different mediums to create different kinds/types of art.

Artists must have a high school education/GED, as well as years of professional art training (such as art school).

OTIS is a famous art school in California.

The job outlook for artists is very small with only six openings annually. Artists dedicate much of their time to their work, although they're salary is less than $50,000.

Art is often considered a "risky" career with such few openings, but the people who pursue it tend to be very passionate.
