In “The Successful Artist’s Career Guide – Finding Your Way in the Business of Art, there are many lists of different types of art jobs to choose from.
Art jobs that sound interesting to me from these lists are:
1. Paint scenery for the theater
2. Teach art to children. I would also like to teach art to people with special needs.
3. Do art workshops with children, the elderly, or the chronically ill.
4. Write about art or art techniques.
5. Work in a gallery
6. Show in a gallery
7. Design posters, cards, stationery
8. Write an art technique book, and/or write and illustrate a book. (I am in the process of trying to come up with a picture book series for children about each type of sea turtle.)
9. Sell my art work at art fairs.
10. Be an apprentice to a well-known artisan (I wish I could work with Georgia O’Keeffe.)
11. Assist another artist (manage schedule, chauffeur, buy art supplies, stretch canvases, etc.)
