Art serves as a mirror—a reflection of one’s soul. For many of us, art serves as a form of freedom—allowing us to express ourselves in creative ways. Luckily, the K to 12 curriculum aids youth like you to hone their artistry through the K12 media and visual arts strand.
The digital era we’re in now fosters modern art. Unlike traditional art, digital art allows young, aspiring artists to create art easily using digital media. Any content created using digital technology is termed as new media.
Now, art has been fostering new opportunities. From websites to applications, there are surely lots of ways to share your craft. Since new media is rampant, new trends arise and businesses benefit from them. In fact, Entrepreneur Magazine says art is a booming 50-billion dollar industry in 2017 alone.
Are you one of those students who want to pursue art but have something that’s holding them back? Don’t worry. We’ve listed five (5) reasons why you should pursue this career through CIIT’s K12 media and visual arts program.
Reasons to Pursue Media and Visual Arts
Art never dies.
In today’s fast-paced setting, art endlessly finds its way to adapt. Most industries find it hard to cope in today’s digital era. This is the reason why most businesses fail. Art continues to spread, allowing itself to delve into diverse platforms. So, you will not fail to come up with various art business ideas to gain money.
Art is integral.
Look around you. Furniture, photographs—even TV ads. Art is everywhere. And people are getting harder to please without using creative crafts. Let’s use advertising as an example. One cannot advertise without the presence of art. It just simply won’t work, right?
Art connects you to people.
Establish your network and make friends to grow your knowledge. Don’t you think it’s better to surround yourself with like-minded friends? Also, you’ll be able to produce better, high-quality art.
Art helps you earn money.
Since we have access to the internet, you can monetize your passion in just a few simple clicks. Most artists are able to sell their products online without having to worry about a physical store. It will be easier to market them to the public.
Art makes you happy.
Art does make people happy. Pursuing your passion may require a huge block of courage, but it is definitely worth it. So, keep in mind: your dream is achievable. Seek what sets your heart on fire, and then do it. Make art. Spread art.
Don’t just chase your dream—make it happen.
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
– Thomas Merton
