A fine canvas

Manohar Lal, principal, Government College of Art, Chandigarh, on career options for fine arts graduates 

Art is the best way to express your emotions and convey your message to others. As it is others. As it is said, artists cannot be made; they are born. So, there is no prerequisite to pursue a course in fine arts. However, this discipline requires inborn talent. 

Therefore, aspirants should be creative. 

Fine arts mainly focus on applied art, graphic design, painting and sculpture. 

One of the most interesting subjects in the field is visual arts, which includes painting, sketching, sculpture, commercial art, printmaking and photography. At the postgraduate level, students can pursue a Master's or diploma in fine arts. Applicants are selected through a rigorous procedure, in cluding an inspection of their art works to determine their calibre. Since almost every industry needs qualified fine arts professionals, there is a huge opportunity for students because they can land jobs in any sector or area globally. Graduates can work in software companies, publishing houses and art studios, or freelance. They can become animators, graphic designers, product designers, typographers, photographers, illustrators, designers, sculptors, painters or teachers. 

Most are self-employed, which enables them to work on pieces of their choice in their preferred time.
