Applied Arts

Fine artists work with many different materials and surfaces, and spend a lot of time on original creations. Most established artists invest effort selling their artwork to potential customers, marketing their work online, and building a reputation. If you enjoy drawing or painting, are especially talented, you may find a career as a digital artist, using graphic design software to create interactive art online. The digital imagery may then be transferred to paper or some other form of printmaking, or made available directly for licensing on the internet through an intermediary website. Whether you sketch manga characters and hope to be a cartoonist, publishing comic books, or wish to pursue commercial art, designing products like furniture or cars, the field of art is wide enough to find your place. You don't have to have showings in a gallery to find success.

Good graphic design stems from an understanding of page design, like you'd see in a magazine. If you break down the elements that make up website design, such as color palettes and mobile graphics, you'll end up with commercial art that works well. Page layout and images can be restricted at first, then expanded as your Photoshop skill-set grows. The better graphic design jobs demand proficiency in software packages such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Dancing Dream

Join us for a tea break moodscape, sketching an impromptu painting in a few brushtrokes. Under one hundred minutes, just enough time without rushing. My brushstrokes are light, and my palette is simple.

Akiane Kramarik - Wonder

Time-lapse painting by Miss Akiane Kramarik. In this one you can see the creative brushstrokes and colour patches.


Welcome to the afternoon series, inspired by the fluctuating sounds of nature, the wafting aroma of tea, and unique movements of the wind.

Serenade, by Akiane

This painting is just utterly breathtakingly beautiful. It's as if one of the great Renaissance painters had stopped by the studio to participate in creating it.


The National Association of Schools of Art and Design accredits more than 360 postsecondary colleges, universities, and independent institutes with programs in art and design. Most programs include courses in studio art, principles of design, computerized design, commercial graphics production, printing techniques, and website design. For many artists, including graphic designers, developing a portfolio is essential because employers rely on portfolios in making hiring decisions.
