What Is Studio Art A.F.A.?
The Associate of Fine Arts degree is a professional transfer degree for students planning to pursue a bachelor's degree with a concentration in studio art at either a four-year college, university or art school. The degree provides experience in selected areas to prepare students for a career in a creative arts profession.
Employment of fine artists is projected to grow 2 percent from 2014 to 2024. Employment growth of artists depends in large part on the overall state of the economy, because people usually make art purchases when they can afford to spend the money.
People established in their career generally earn between $32,230 and $72,260 per year. Exceptional performers can earn in excess of $103,680.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, earnings increase significantly as a worker’s degree of education rises.
Studio Art Careers
Depending on job experience and additional education, graduates with a Studio Art A.F.A. Transfer Program degree are employed in a broad range of careers including, but not limited to: painters, sculptors and illustrators.
