Culinary Artist

Trinity Kelly Hr. 8

Career Overview

In my career I would learn to use cooking and preparing food as an art style. Knives would be used with just about every project. Serving size and temperate must be accurate, so it is important that I am aware of when the food is cooking at all times.

What Will You Do

Culinary Artists create all sorts of cultural dishes and make sure that the presentation is perfect. They keep track of expenses and payments they need to make. They also must communicate very clearly to their cooking staff. If they aren't clear with what they want the staff to do, lots of mistake will be made. Cleaning the dishes is still a chore that must be done too in order to keep the kitchen clean and organized.


The minimum degree needed in order to be a qualified culinary artist would be a Bachelors degree.

Apply For Financial Aid and Scholarships

The cost will be a lot to save up for. Applying for a scholarship would really help pay for the high cost of college. Even if the scholarship is only a few hundred dollars, it's a few hundred dollars I don't need to worry about. Financial Aid is also an option but a little more tricky than a scholarship because you must pay your financial aid cost back.

Part Time Job

A part time job will greatly help cover the cost of tuition and living. Being in a serious amount of debt is something that should be avoided by all means. Having a job gives you money to pay for yourself at college.

Career In The Future

I still want this career, but the college might be different for the first two years to get my associates degree. I am very passionate about this career and look forward to doing it after college.
