    “What is called the ‘creative sector’ now makes up approximately one third of the national economy” (Freedman, 2010).  The creative sector includes painting, computer game design, design, sculpture, comics, cartooning, advertising, television, filmmaking, architecture, toy design, fashion, and landscape design.  These are the jobs that art educators are preparing their students for and Cassadaga continues to offer classes that gear their students towards the jobs that are taking over the economy.  The risk-taking involved in making authentic and real art creates leadership qualities as well as courage.  These characteristics are what employers are searching for in this economy and in the “creative sector” and other fields, because they are “out of the box” thinkers.
