  • Gallery Assistant

    Galleries attract the influential and affluent, allowing you to expand your network greatly within the industry, and the public sphere. You will be able to communicate with artists from all walks of life during exhibitions, to ensure that their needs are met and that the purchase and subsequent sale of gallery artworks is a smooth process.

  • Art Teacher

    You will be able to shadow art teachers in high schools and colleges, along with the students. Whether you hope to run your own art classes one day, or enlighten the next generation of aspiring artists in university lecture rooms, entrenching oneself in deep learning will broaden your perspectives.
