Yes. Students get a solid grounding in art and learn to appreciate it. They get a better handle of the concept behind a traditional painting, and also start to see it differently, as it becomes more difficult for them to define the concepts of their paintings.
As a result, they are able to become more aware of the work of others. This gives them an edge in competitive drawing tournaments, where the artist with the most popular work out the most people will win. They also gain insight to what others think a painting should look like; if a painter looks down at his or her canvas with a sour expression on their face, is that what the viewer, the judges, or the viewer’s fellow artists would think? The viewer could easily get a better idea of how that painting looks if they start looking at it with a blank expression. That brings an element of beauty to the work. Another factor to consider is that people will often judge a painting based on its own personality and personal style, and that makes each painting a unique expression.
You can choose whether to take art classes in-person or by email. You can take these classes online or through the phone. They range from beginner-level lessons to graduate-level courses. While the classes at the Art Center generally cost between $40 and $80, students with financial challenges can find affordable classes through the school’s online program.
How are you able to afford such expensive art classes? Did you choose art or a business degree?
Yes. Many students, such as myself, chose to study business because I felt like the skills I acquired in the course gave me a better chance of a successful career. At the same time, I could find art-related employment, if my abilities weren’t recognized as well-suited. I studied the basics of painting, drafting and layout, and it suited me down to the ground; I had the necessary skills in the subject I was studying for art classes. In addition, my father works as a real estate broker, so he has to work hard to find jobs, while I’ve lived on scholarships and the support of my parents for the past seven years. I can’t emphasize enough that, in the future, this is why I chose to study business.
What are some other benefits you got out of pursuing this career?
While I don’t know of any other graduate in my class who was able to break into a career within the art world, it was always there. I think a lot
