I'm not finished with my art studies so I want to get a job so I can save money and use that for my education. Anything Art related is great
because I don't want to be doing something that I don't like or not good at. I want to be close to my passion in just anyway possible just to keep me sane! Please keep in mind that I'm not well equipped to do good or professional quality works, so I'm looking for jobs that would suit myself. What would you guys recommend? I'm kind of stuck in a rut right now emotionally so your suggestions would mean a lot to me! Thanks!
Im kinda in the same situation here and not sure what to do either. Im not sure on pacific jobs but I s'pose that you could always look on the net or on this website, theres bound to be somethin 'bout simple Artistic jobs somewhere. The problem is where I think i betta jus shut up now cuz i dunno what im sayin Anyway, gd luck with findin somethin!
I guess you can start by doing some freelance works. If you are still in school, maybe you can talk with professors to see if they have any projects you can help to work on. At least it'll help to put something serious in your portfolio.
I was talking about something like this to an art major student, and since I have some web programming skills, she recommended me to try to go to local shops and stores and organizations, ask them if they'd like to have a web site build for low cost, with logo designs, etc. I never get the time to try that, but I guess it doesn't hurt to pass that suggestion on to you.
My other friend even suggested to submit comic strips to local news papers, but I don't really know how that works, since I only tried with school's news papers, and those are usually unpaid.
If you live in a big city, you can alwayd be a street portrait artist. Once you get the hang of it, you can make pretty cash with it. (A parent's friend used to do that, he can make about 150 dollar per night, and he drew slow. If he could drew faster, he might be able to double that.)
You can also see if local galleries is hiring. Even if it's just simple jobs like cashier and things, but at least you'll get to know the art scene better.
Yeah, I was thinking of working for a gallery. I think that would be cool since I like that kind of atmosphere.Originally Posted by look
