Career Advancement:  Usually requires a four-year bachelor's degree. A minimum of two to four years of work-related skill, knowledge, or experience is needed for this occupation. Employees in this occupation usually need several years of work-related experience, on-the-job training, and/or vocational training. Evidence of appropriate talent and skill, displayed in an artists portfolio, is an important factor used by art directors, clients, and others in deciding whether to hire an individual or contract for their work. A portfolio is a collection of handmade, computer-generated, photographic, or printed samples of the artists best work. Assembling a successful portfolio requires skills usually developed through postsecondary training in art or visual communications. Internships also provide excellent opportunities for artists to develop and enhance their portfolios.
