CUSTOM FRAME DESIGNER/PAINTER: Carrying Over Artistic Skills Into Framing

About this video 

This custom frame designer spends his typical day helping customers choose a frame for their certificates, artwork, or photographs. He went to art school and currently still paints when he is not at work. He advises young people that what you study in school won't define your life, and you might not even need to go to school right away, so do not stress about it.

Job Title: Custom Frame Designer

Job Summary: Craft Artists

Job Description

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.
