If you are interested in gaining skills and knowledge in an arts subject, an Associate of Arts can give you what you need to succeed in entry-level positions in your desired field. These are often less intensive and expensive options than bachelor’s degrees but still provide proof of higher education.

What is an Associate of Arts in Drawing? If you’ve always had a sketchbook on hand or you are interested in graphic design, a drawing course can improve your techniques and show you new ones. Drawing, 2-D design, 3-D design, figure drawing, painting, color theory, and computer graphics are just a few of the topics you may see covered in such a program. Often, programs require you to create a portfolio as a final project, which can help you when finding employment.

You may have come in with a passion for drawing, but you are likely to leave with improved skills in coloring and technology, both of which are necessary in a modern arts world. Through understanding assignments, you may also learn communication skills that make it easier to understand a client’s needs and produce an appealing design.

Program length can very between schools, but an associate in drawing typically takes 1-2 years if you study full time. Since course requirements vary and locations differ, costs are equally as different. It might be useful to contact the schools you wish to attend to determine which options would work best for your budget.

Once you have your diploma in drawing, you may choose to work in studio arts, advertising, publishing, marketing, and many other industries that often utilize art. You may work as an illustrator, graphic designer, sketch artist, and animator. You have the option of opening your own studio to showcase your sketches and other art or sell your skills as a freelancer.

It is never too late to start your education or go back to finish it. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
