Many creative individuals want to pursue a career in the art industry, and they may decide that a degree in the fine arts is the way to reach their goals. A fine arts qualification might be an associate degree, a bachelor's degree, a master's degree or even a doctorate.

The curriculum in a fine arts degree is very balanced and focuses on art theory, art history and appreciation of a range of different types of art. However, each student will focus primarily on one or two mediums that they will specialize in.

        If you are interested in pursuing a career in fine arts, then read through this list of art specializations to determine what would be best for you as well as what kinds of careers are possible for each.

        Painting and Drawing

        As you might imagine, the painting and drawing specialization in fine arts is the most common for students. This form of visual expression can be traditional or contemporary and includes creating visual images on a canvas or paper thanks to oil paints, charcoal pencils, chalk or even crayons.

        This study of fine arts will include plenty of practice work creating art personally, but it will also focus on the study and appreciation of other famed paintings and drawings throughout history. Graduates often go on to become artists themselves, or they may work in art galleries or museums.

        Sculpture

        This type of art is three-dimensional and serves to mimic the appearance of a person or thing, as in the cast of a bust, or it might be a fictional representation, such as of a dragon. Sculpture is the most common kind of public art to find in parks and public gardens, so many graduates are able to find commissions in their local neighborhoods or sell their works privately.

        Photography

        Taking photos and manipulating images is a fine art that is incredibly popular around the world. In a fine arts program, you will learn how to tell a story with a photo, use software to digitally edit pictures and how to create or take away shadows using external photography lights. Graduates may work as professional photographers for travel companies, hotels, in their own portrait businesses or even as technical product photographers for catalogs or large manufacturers.

        Creative Writing

        This type of art is written rather than visual, but it considered a part of the fine arts curriculum because it requires creativity and skill in order to produce a fantastic piece of literature in the form of a poem or even a novel. Students will learn how to expand plots into full stories, how to express themselves more accurately, how to develop characters and how to work more efficiently each day. Graduates may write novels, screenplays, poetry, travel brochures, blogs or advertising copy.

        Comic Books and Animation

        Although this may appear similar to the fine art of drawing, animation is actually a distinctly different field that involves utilizing a number of pictures to tell a story or narrative. Many graduates will go on to illustrate comic books or even use the same illustration techniques to create the images for video games.

        Dance and Theater

        This type of fine art is dramatically different from the ones already mentioned. Dancing and acting are two arts that involve the use of the human body to tell a story or express an emotion. Dancers must learn technical skills but also creative ways to emphasize parts of the body or parts of a musical piece.

        It is clear to see that a fine arts degree can include several different aspects. If any of the fine arts listed above appeals to you as a career choice, then an online degree may be just what you need to pursue your creative career goals.

        Discover the advantages of online learning. You can earn the degree you want and continue to maintain your current responsibilities. Today's online education is designed to give you the flexibility and convenience necessary to keep your life going while advancing your education and career opportunities.
