Graduation Art schools focus on helping individuals who want careers in the visual arts.  Majors generally include art education, ceramics, painting, screen printing, sculpture, and studio art.

While very few artists are able to make a living producing and selling their art, graduates of art programs are generally well-prepared to find work in other art-related areas, such as education.  As a matter of fact, many art school graduates end up as private instructors and schoolteachers, as well as university professors of both art and art history.  Others branch out into more commercial work such as illustration or cartooning.

While the curriculum generally includes courses such as color and design, drawing, painting, and two- and three-dimensional design, other courses such as art and culture, foreign languages, art history, and English composition ensure that the graduate is well-rounded.

How much can an art school graduate potentially earn?  Well, cartoonists, painters and illustrators, sculptors, and sketch artists make, on average, about $41,000 per year.  That being said, there are relatively few job openings for each of these categories — about 4,000.

Multi-media artists and animators make slightly more, close to $50,000, and there are significantly more job openings — about 14,000.  Art directors, on the other hand, compete for 10,000 jobs but make the most money at just over $60,000.

With 329,000 job openings, postsecondary art allows the art school graduate the best opportunity at viable employment.  On average, postsecondary teachers make about $50,000 per year.
