Art (including Graphic Arts)

You're creative. You love to draw, paint, sculpt, write, take pictures, or design. But what does it take to have a career as an artist? There are a multitude of career options available for people with an interest in art. Artists can typically be categorized into four groups:

  • Art Directors: Art directors develop design concepts for media pieces and oversee the entire creation and production process.
  • Craft Artists: Craft artists hand-make objects, such as candles, tapestries, quilts, and pottery, to be sold or shown.
  • Fine Artists: Fine artists create items such as paintings, sculpture, photographs, and illustrations that are often displayed in museums and galleries.
  • Multimedia Artists: Multimedia artists create images for film, video and other forms of electronic media.

Richland offers career and transfer options in all of these categories, depending on student interest. If you are interested in art, to learn more please stop by the Liberal Arts office in C162 or call (217) 875-7211, ext. 6386.
