People often have this lofty notion that art is only of the senses, which is to say that art will touch you at a level that is beyond mere material considerations. While art does touch you at many levels and make your senses come alive, that is not all that art can do. Art can actually help you earn too and once you realize that art can not only please but also earn you name, fame, and money, you will find more parents encouraging their children to take up art as a profession.
Here are some practical aspects of art that will get you started on some good professions:
The art of designing clothes: If you are like some of my friends who see every bit of fabric cut and draped to make the most appealing of clothes, then you should take this artistic ability of yours and make a profession out of it. You will have to do courses to channelize your talents in the right direction.
The art of interior decoration: When it comes to homes and the way they are put together, you will observe that some people seem to have everything down right and some others can make the beautiful home look really haphazard. This is where the art of interior decoration comes in and people actually pay someone to do this for them. Another aspect of art that allows you to appeal to the senses and make money at the same time.
Needle work pays off too: If you are the type who is really adept with a needle and thread to create embroidery that has others gasping, you have two important things in your hand. One is to appeal to the senses of vision when people gaze upon your art and another important one is the commercial aspect of making money. That is when people will realize how different types of needle work or stitches can make things prettier.
Even culinary arts please and pay: Some people claim to have no inclination or talent for art but can take a few ingredients and with a few moves convert into something that looks good, smells divine and tastes scrumptious. Is that not an art? It is not only an art that can appeal to many senses but also help you earn money. What is more find out more about the art of cooking and find out how it helps in overcoming negative feelings.\
Printing your way to wealth: No, we are not talking about anything illegal but the fact that many artists use their artistic bent of mind to create commercial artworks like illustrations, posters, banners, greeting cards and other pretty things. Just think about it, these artists not only make things for people to enjoy, they make them pretty and also ensure that these are affordable.
Dancing to health and wealth: If you are into dancing then you can go on to become a lofty performer and become famous. But we all know that with so much competition coming into the fore, not all can become artists of such note. However this does not mean that you cannot use your art to create wealth for yourself by teaching others to do it and make them healthy.
Not everyone is blessed with artistic talents and skills and even then out of those who are blessed, very few become world known or leaders in their world. But this does not mean that you let your talents go waste; you can and should use them to make your own world and those of others even happier. After all even living well is an art!
