The work environment for fine
artists varies from studios
housed in warehouses and lofts
to private home workspaces. If
you find a salaried job in a company, gallery or firm, you can expect to work a standard work week, but if you are a freelance artist, you'll probably set your own schedule.
Studio courses stress concentration and self-discipline leading to eventual self expression; at the same time they provide an in-depth understanding of art and its traditional and contemporary
principles and theories. If you're
not ready to commit to any one
medium and you love bringing
your ideas to life, studio art could be the major for you.

What Can I Do with A Degree in Studio Art?
|Why major in art? Why not just grab a paintbrush, pencil, or
chisel and do your thing? The reasons to study art in college are
many. You'll have the chance to try out new media - you may
enter school as a painter and fall in love with printmaking. You
might start out sculpting in clay but discover that woodworking is
your true love. From your professors, you'll learn skills and techniques that will help you work more efficiently and consistently. With your peers, you'll practice the art of critique. And in art history classes, you'll learn from great masters new and old. Students in studio arts learn the skills and techniques they need to express themselves as visual artists.
