Art Teachers


Employment opportunities for elementary, middle school teachers, and high school teachers are expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2028, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. The need to replace retiring teachers will provide many opportunities nationwide. However, the demand for art teachers will be much lower because schools hire a limited number of art faculty. Additionally, there is a surplus of talented, qualified art professionals wanting to get into teaching. Positions in inner-city schools or rural areas may be easier to find than in suburban school districts. Art teachers who teach self-enrichment classes at private educational institutions and in other settings should have slightly better employment opportunities—although these positions are typically part time and offer lower salaries than positions in formal school settings.
