What jobs are available for a skilled artist?

I am still in high school, but I am great at art (painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, graphic design etc.) I want to go to collage and major in art and/or creative writing for at least 4 years, the education is not a problem for me. Now my problem is, I don't know what jobs are available to my interests, or the chances of the average person to succeed in that job.
