Check out the Art Career Project‘s website at TheArtCareerProject.com. They offer great interviews and articles about different art careers to choose–helpful for beginners as well as mid career artists. They have explored graphic design, painting, jewelry design, framing, photography, to name a few. They provide easy to access information about art schools, too.
The Art Career Project interviewed me, too: Margaret Peot on Costume Painting and Book Writing. Check it out!
