Although formal schooling is not required, many fine artists choose to obtain a bachelor's or master's degree in fine arts to develop their skill and gain credibility.  Some choose to freelance part time to become established in their careers while they work another job, and advance professionally as their reputation and portfolio grows.  Those who wish to teach fine arts in the public school system must also obtain a teaching certificate, and government or foundation management positions typically required an advanced fine arts degree.  Competition for full time fine arts jobs is expected to be keen, but most dedicated fine art artists find a way to continually incorporate art into their lives, whether professionally or personally, for the benefit and enjoyment of others and themselves.
