Careers in Culture – Careers in Visual Arts and Crafts

> Plan your visual career

Building a career in visual arts, crafts or design requires creativity, an interest in all things visual, and curiosity about how to “get there from here.” You will need to explore how to get the information, education, training and experience that will enable you to achieve your career goals.

Depending on the choices you make, you could become a visual artist or administrator, a promoter or retailer, a teacher or critic. Your career could be in the fine arts, or one of the crafts professions. Or it could follow one of the many paths within design.
