Though making a living as a full-time artist is extremely challenging, it’s certainly doable. People with art degrees own galleries, work in museums, become crafters, graphic artists, illustrators, photographers, fashion designers as well as painters and sculptors.

The study of art can be leveraged into post-graduate work in museum studies, medical illustration, art history, art education and fine art.
