Which Art Program is Right for You?
“I’ve had a passion for art since I was a child. But there are so many art and design programs to choose from! Which one is right for me?”
If you’ve ever wondered what to do with your creative talents, you’re definitely not alone! There are quite a few students who have been in this position. So today we're going to take a look at some of the most popular art industries and hopefully it'll give you an idea which one to choose!
Interior design is one of the fields that will get you a nine-to-five source of income. You can join a design firm or work in a large furniture showroom, but you can also set up your own business.
The work ranges from home staging, commercial design for restaurants and shops, to the design and decoration of homes for homeowners… The demand for interior design is great, and there are always opportunities for you to make a transition to related fields such as stage design, window-display designer, or furniture/material supplier.
Among all of the areas in art and design, architecture is one of the top choices in terms of future employment. In a country like Canada where immigration brings in a constant influx of people, the number of newly-built housing is consistently reaching record highs, which means that the demand for architectural designers is also growing! Canada's large-scale architectural design companies are too many to count. And after accumulating a certain level of experience, you will have the option to set up your own studio.
