Best Online Courses in Applied Arts 2019/2020

For those interested in learning about subjects ranging from finance to art, taking an academic course can provide theoretical and practical knowledge, as well as the enjoyment of learning a new subject. Courses vary in length of time, cost and number of sessions each week.

What is a course in applied arts? Since ancient times, people have used art to enhance the beauty of everyday objects, a skill now referred to as applied art. Those with an aptitude for interior decorating can take courses that teach the fundamentals of design as well as the entrepreneurial skills required to begin a business. Students can study marketing and finances as well. Others can investigate commercial photography or combine artistic and technical skills by learning graphic design.

Besides honing their artistic abilities, students can learn business management and project planning skills. Becoming adept at business finances can benefit students in their personal budgeting as well.

Courses in applied arts can be taken singly or as part of a continuing education plan. Costs vary depending on the educational aims of the student and the institution offering the courses. Students should research the possibilities.

Those who take a course in applied arts as part of a degree path can consider careers as commercial, graphic or fashion designers. Interior designer and animator are also considered applied art careers. If a student does not pursue an advanced degree, the skills learned in the course about beginning a business can help launch an entrepreneurial career in interior design or set design. Others can find positions as visual merchandisers or designers of exhibits.

Online courses for applied arts abound, or you may choose to take a class at a local university or college where the opportunity for hands-on projects can enhance the educational experience.
