BOHEMIA, N.Y., May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ArtSchools.com, a leading online directory of art majors, details how artists and designers are creating different types of jobs in categories that did not exist years ago.
According to an April 30th article published by USC News titled "Designers and artists are creating careers of the future," technology has paved the way for many artists and designers. In fact, technology has increased the possibilities for artists looking for careers. For instance, traditional artists now have the ability to create digitally printed advertisements, or design artificial video environments for musicians.
The article says that many students use new technology to enhance their artwork. While some traditional artists may be wary of adapting their skills, Andrew Huang, a filmmaker and artist that has created music videos for leading musicians, says, "The technology will always change. Your eye won't."
Andrew Girard, a representative at ArtSchools.com, a directory of art majors, says art is an important degree, especially now. "More industries are relying on creative individuals to bring ideas to life," he says. "Art is not just about painting and sculpting anymore. It's about adapting your artistic skills for new technologies and using it to create promotional pieces for brands or individuals."
Girard says that many art schools now prepare students for working in other types of industries. "A student with a strong background in fine arts, drawing or painting, might be able to hone their skills to become a graphic designer for a marketing company," he explains. "With the ever-changing world of technology, the possibilities are endless."
