Sculptor Career Information

What a Sculptor does

Abilities & Traits Required

The most essential traits in this field are:

• Talent

• A strong desire to express your feelings in art form

• Dedication

• An eye for form

• Ability to utilise colours

• Creativity

• Originality

• Patience


History is rife with examples of self-schooled artists with no formal educational training who are both brilliant and innovative; unfortunately, history is also rife with examples of starving artists, dying in obscurity. Formal educational training in this field is becoming the norm.

You can go for a Bachelor in Fine Arts (BFA). It is a four-year degree program segmented into two courses, namely Foundation course (1 year) and specialisation course (3 years). Further professional study can be pursued through a Masters in Fine Arts (MFA) programme usually spanning over two years. Eligibility for joining BFA is HSC. Diploma in Fine Arts is another option for you.


Though this profession doesn't pay too well the reason why people choose to join the unremunerative and very selective fine arts--is because they love what they do.

Initially you'll have to start your career by presenting your works to people for free! You could exhibit your work in a gallery and earn anything between Rs 5000 - 9000 on an individual piece of work.

Gradually, this could move on to the 10000 - 30000 bracket. Once your work is recognized then an individual piece could cost up to Rs 2 Lakh or more. Good, no?
