If you finished a an art education degree, you can find job opportunities not only as an art teacher or educator but also in museums, schools, galleries, and other art related activities. You can find jobs in art education in different fields such as computer arts, fine arts, and even in cosmetology. These careers are almost always hands- on especially in summer art classes but theories are still being taught especially if you are to teach grade school pupils. These theories contain the history and development of art.
If you are passionate for art, you may pursue any art education job but a bachelor’s degree in art with teaching license or certificate is required if you are to apply for school art teacher and you need to have extensive knowledge for art if you are interested in applying as museum curator. Many artists do teaching as their part time jobs but full time job at summer art classes.
Though there are many job opportunities to choose from, the artists mostly choose to be self employed even if only a few patronize artworks since they tend to be expensive. Some artists are even branded as starving artists since they are not able to have a big break in their career and that they cannot sustain their own needs with their income. There is a website which has the answer to solve these artists problem. TheThrivingArtist.com offers a 13 and 1/ 2 hour multimedia downloadable course that teach you on how to make a living out of your drawings. This contains guidelines on how to sell your art and how to keep the clients coming. The author has been generous that he will give good offers if you purchase the course now

An art therapy is a psychological treatment that uses a creative process to treat a client. An art therapy job is a job of an art therapist. Art therapists are mental health professionals that use therapeutic interventions through the use of art combined with therapeutic counseling. Their ultimate goal is to improve the mental and physical health of their clients. Generally, art therapists guide their client in self expression to develop their self awareness and coping techniques. Settings which offer art therapy jobs include private practice, hospitals, substance abuse centers, correction facilities, schools and community centers. Most of these settings require the art therapist to have a master’s degree, but if you only have a bachelor’s degree, an assistant position is available for you.
In this kind of job, you might be required to work as a team with other professionals such as doctors and social workers. Most of the clients in an art therapy job includes children with chronic illness, elderly or psychiatric patients. Art therapy can be done individually or as a group. Clinics, hospitals and residential care facilities are the leading employers of art therapists. In a residential facility, art therapy serves as a beneficial leisure activity.
There are a lot of specific art therapy jobs and some of these are: art massage therapy, art therapy in children, art music therapy and art physical therapy.
If you are hoping to have a career as an art therapist then American Art Therapy Association can assist you with it. They have recently launched an online job board which they called the Art Therapy Career Center. It can be your resource and connection in making your online employment.
Nowadays, art therapy became one of the growing health careers and its acceptance as a profession in the medical field continues to improve. According to the American Art Therapy Association, there are about 5,000 registered art therapists. The job outlook and opportunities of art therapy is very promising for the reason that it is expected to increase in the years to come.

Artists are passionate in showing their talents. But the big question is: will they ever make money out of being an artist? Well, yes. I took the liberty of looking into the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Outlook Handbook to see how artists are making money.
• Almost 62% of artists and art related workers are self-employed.
• The employment of artists and art related workers will probably increase to 16% by the year 2016. This rate is faster compared to the national average for other fields.
• Animators and Multi-media artists will be most in demand by 2016 with projected 26% increase in their employment.
• Fine artists will have a 10% increase in employment.
• Fine artists, sculptors, illustrators, and painters earn an average annual salary of $41,970.
• Animators and multi-media artists earn about $52,000 (excluding the numbers earned by self-employed animators).
• Artists (fine, multi-media, animators, art directors, and craft artists) have almost 218,000 jobs in the U.S.
With these facts, we can see that most artists are self employed. Artists thrive to make a living and sell their artworks in reasonably high prices. Artists also struggle to be famous. But admit it, being famous is very difficult. This is the undeniable fact that artists must face. But through the course offered by The Thriving artist will make you the artist you want to be through simple ways. This course will give you knowledge on what you need to know about selling your artworks, help you earn money like you never imagined, and many more! You can say “Starving Artist No More” once you take this course and be guided by it

With all the hoopla about selling art online, there is one surefire way any artist can began selling art online for free or at least at minimal cost. There are three easy steps that you as an artist can follow without spending any money or little money at all. First, would be to set-up a blog. Next, set-up an account and fan page on Facebook. Third, is set-up a following on Twitter followed by YouTube. You may or may not have heard of these four platforms but by following these steps you can began marketing your work and build a following around you that can lead to making sells with your work.
One of the most easy and creative ways to sell your art online for free or very little money (under 100 dollars) is using a blog. The beauty of a blog is that you can post images of your work, videos of your art, and sell your work. With a blog you make posts about your works in progress, tell about your upcoming shows and etc. Blogs are very easy to set-up. Two of the most desired blog platforms are WordPress. com and blogger. com.
Another great thing about having a blog is that people can easily find you because of Google’s search engine. Google and other popular search engines love blogs that are loaded with creative content. If you want to start selling your art online without any cost to, you would want to go ahead and set-up an account with Blogger or WordPress today. It’s very easy and there tons of videos on YouTube that show how to set-up your blog so that you can began selling art online for free today. The most important thing to remember is that you want to post something on your blog at least two to three times a week so that your blog can be easily found through Google. The more you post the higher your ranking becomes.
Another great way to sell your art online for free is via Facebook, which is becoming more popular. You may not believe me but, you can make sales just by allowing your friends, family, and fans to instantly view your work through simply posting new images or content about the work. I have made several art sells to friends, through friends Facebook pages, and to fans of my work when they saw my work posted on Facebook.
The beauty of Facebook and other social media is you can connect with people in real time. So, if you’ve just finished painting, sculpting, or drawing you can immediately post the work on Facebook and get instant feedback. This also allows you to connect with potential buyers and build relationships. Another great thing about using Facebook, is that it can be a great way to connect to galleries.
More and more galleries are subscribing to Facebook and connecting with artists and art collectors and this is a great advantage for you. These galleries can connect you to people who are willing to spend money on art.
If you have an account already, go ahead and begin a fan-page based on your art and begin connecting with friends, family, and fans. This also allows you to separate your personal life from your art business. Market your work through your fan-page and build relationships along the way. If you have a blog already have a link directing visitors on your blog to your Facebook page.
Facebook Fanpage is another way to stay connected to your market.
A third way to sell your work online for free is via Twitter. Twitter is a little different from Facebook. It is not as personal as Facebook however you can still connect with your fans and people who follow your work. The difference with Twitter is that you cannot post anything over 140 characters and it is not as easy to post images or video from your account.
On the plus side, with Twitter you can update people (or your following) about your shows, work (s), and on other pertinent info about yourself. You can use it to also drive people back to your website, blog, and Facebook where people can see more of your work and information about your work.
Although Twitter only allows you to use 40 characters, it is still is a great way to market to your following and build your list.
YouTube, my favorite way to sell artwork online, can be a great way to build a following and drive them to your website, blog, Facebook, and Twitter page. The neat thing about making a video is that it allows people to see your true emotions and see the real you. Creating a video on YouTube is a great way to show of your work. You can post a video of you creating your work, selling your work, and/or talking about your work.
The key to having videos on YouTube is to use the video to drive traffic to the main place(s) where you sell your artwork.
With all the various social networks and blog platforms you can began selling art online for free or with minimal cost. You can sell and promote your art for free today with a blog, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Most four are easy to set up and can be use to drive traffic to your site or blog and ultimately began selling art online easily.

I want to start doing commissions, but doing them on sites like Deviant Art and Ebay are getting me nowhere. . Deviant Art is a popularity contest and Ebay is better for art that is already made. Is there anywhere I could sell commissions that you know of. I was so glad to find this — I set up my own website for this very reason. Currently, I'm drawing for donations only, but that may change in the future if someone needs a much large project. Take a look @ It's a simple site so it doesn't take away too much time from my drawing and I've made enough money to pay for art supplies so far.

. Do you know what I found? The Internet is a wonderful invention. If you take your subject of your question and add to what you want to know about it, the search engine will do the rest. For example: My subject is Primary and Secondary Education. I want to know where to get certified as a teacher. The search engine result is as follows: Teaching + state certification requirements What you get is this: This will work for any subject category. Give it a try and good luck I like that approach better than just saying "Google it" or "Look online".
