Careers in Painting
Painters may commission their work to corporate or private collections, display them in art galleries or museums, or be hired to paint portraits or other works. Conducting private workshops or classes, restoring paintings, or becoming art therapists, critics, or directors are also possibilities.
Use the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.
Manage programs in education, therapy, or public service. Oversee and apply for grants, report to your donors and board, and plan for your organization.
Clean, repair, and restore a damaged work of art to a state similar to its original condition. Regularly handle and work with rare and valuable pieces.
Mix studio time with time spent teaching one or more classes. Hone your skill while utilizing the resources of the host organization.
Produce art for promotional materials and commercials.
Create extremely large works of art, often paintings, applied to a wall, ceiling, or floor. Use different styles to bring beauty to an interior or exterior space.
