What career paths can I take in fine arts?
Your Fine Arts diploma gives you many career opportunities
A Fine Art education has inherent personal, cultural and critical value. A survey of the careers pursued by graduates of Canadian art schools would give some idea of the practical values of such an education. Graduates can be found pursuing their own professional studio practices, as well as careers in teaching, curating, commercial galleries, and sales.
