Career Ready

Artists are fully integrated in every industry in every way.

Their creative abilities, collaborative nature, communication skills and innovative approaches take them to places they never considered before.

Whether you design apps or ball gowns, curate galleries or edit video, the critical thinking skills you gain at the Hartford Art School prepare you for a fulfilling career that’s just as unique and tailored as you are.

You will learn more than how to work with clients, how to market yourself, and how to craft a resumé. You will learn how to lead teams and carry out a project from start to finish.

The spaces you visit, the chairs you sit on, the places you shop–all of these experiences are thought about and designed by artists.

Artists flourish in careers that demand vision and attention to detail. Companies like Starbucks, West Elm, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie hire artists to produce site-specific, localized artworks for their merchandising and marketing needs.

Your creative solutions to modern problems make you an essential part of today’s workforce, and we can’t wait to help you along your path.
