If you love to draw, sketch, sculpt, play music or take photographs then an associate degree in fine arts may be the path that you should take in life. While studying fine arts, you will not only have the opportunity to learn new techniques and receive constructive criticism from working professionals. You will learn the history of the arts and the driving forces that have helped shape them.
In itself, the term fine arts is rather broad and because of this the majority of schools have now broken their associate degree programs down into more specialized degrees.
The most common specialized fine arts associate degree programs are:
Build Your Portfolio and Future
- Ceramics and sculpture
- Digital media
- Graphic design
At the same time that you are studying you will be building a portfolio that can help you when you either apply to a bachelors of fine arts program or start seeking employment. This is where having the assistance of your instructors can really give you a leg up on the competition in these highly competitive fields. With the majority of instructors being working artists themselves, they are a great source of not only advice but potential contacts as well.
There are many career paths that having an associate degree in fine arts can assist you in. Beyond the obvious, of working as a professional artist, many degree holders find employment with museums, art galleries, publishing companies, ad agencies, theater companies or become teachers themselves.
In general terms, anywhere you see art is a potential employment opportunity for someone with an associate degree in fine arts.
