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.

Well, I don't know what kind of artist you are, but if you wanted to start making some money now you could try selling your work on etsy.com. It's sort of like e-bay, but it's not an auction and people sell their crafts and art and anything else that's handmade. You should check it out. I love it.
