Express Your Artistic Side

The world offers an exciting range of careers for those who are open-minded and thrive on creative exploration. Many of the careers in the visual arts are highly challenging and require the utmost dedication and perseverance if success is to follow. The rewards are well worth the intense effort, however, whether you are selling your work as an independent studio artist (ceramicist, painter, sculptor, photographer, etc.) or are part of a design team in an advertising company, as the stimulation and satisfaction from working in a creative field is vibrant and qualitative.

Artists are creative people with something to say about a subject or group of subjects. Ellsworth’s Art and Graphic Design programs can lead to a number of rewarding careers. One of the greatest benefits of being an Artist is having an open canvas of opportunity and the freedom to market your work in any path you choose. From pottery or painting to teaching or interior design, ECC provides lots of options for art enthusiasts seeking a career path in Fine Arts!
