Those who wish to carry art forward in the future, are open to various different forms of art to choose from. It could be textile designing, ceramic art, glass art, interior designing, mandala art, and the like.

You have to have an artist’s eye, first. You’ve got to perceive art in everything you see. If it interests you, then you know you can go ahead with the subject. You need to understand which form of art appeals to you the most. You can then specialize in that area.

Editor’s Note:

High school is a wonderful time if you make good use of it. Again, your academic performance will always be the prime focus, but that’s not the only focus; every youngster should focus on building themselves up to be a value-adding person to the University ecosystem they want to get into.
