AbstractBy interviewing professional artists, I explore the career skills fine artists perceive as necessary for financial success in the art world. Through interviews with art teachers, I examine how these necessary career concepts are being taught in elementary and secondary art classrooms. I also discuss reasons for insufficient implementation of career skills and provide suggestions for how art teachers can improve their career education curriculum.
