Melinda, an artist, art teacher and assistant manager at a stained glass shop, describes the challenges of her job, what she likes most, her key decisions, how to get into the industry, and her work-life balance. She tells us that she loves working with all the artists who come into the shop and helping them in their artwork. Even after being surrounded by art all day at her job, she still wants to create her own work when she returns home at the end of the day.
Craft and fine artists use a variety of materials and techniques to create art for sale and exhibition. Craft artists create handmade objects, such as pottery, glassware, textiles, or other objects that are designed to be functional. Fine artists, including painters, sculptors, and illustrators, create original works of art for their aesthetic value, rather than a functional one.
Long-term on-the-job training
Some craft and fine artists learn on the job from more experienced artists. Others attend non-credit classes or workshops or take private lessons, which may be offered in artists’ studios or at community colleges, art centers, galleries, museums, or other art-related institutions.
