There are a number of people who have the talent to draw a portrait of someone or to paint a beautiful picture of the landscape. Having this talent is not always enough to make a career out of it. You need to have a drive, a passion, and a head for business. Luckily these are all things that you can learn through experience and some good advice.

The best way to make a name for yourself is to have artwork that is one of a kind. Everyone has talent – but often we need to enhance that raw ability and expand upon it. Search for universities in your area and go for an undergraduate program in art. You should be taking studio classes and cover any technical information that will help you to learn new techniques.

Try to accumulate slides of your best artwork. Try to provide a variety of paintings, drawings, and photographs if you have them. A number of undergraduate programs will ask for a portfolio along with the application to the school.

While you are in school try to make yourself known and look at other more popular artworks. Visit art openings and look at what people love the most. Look at the colors, designs, and landscapes. Apply this to your work – but make it original to you. If your work is not original than you will lose appeal and respect from other artists and those who appreciate your work.

Along with art classes you should also apply for business classes. This will help you to know how to manage a business of your own. It also helps to put this on your resume when you are ready to look for a job in an art gallery or other places. Make sure that you provide any job with your art portfolio.
