Antiques and Art Dealers
You can become an antiques or art dealer with a high school
diploma, though many successful dealers have become specialists in
their field partly through further education. While in high school,
concentrate on history and art classes to familiarize yourself with
the particular significance and details of different periods in
time and the corresponding art of the period. Consider studying
home economics if you plan to specialize in household items. This
knowledge can come in handy when distinguishing a wooden rolling
pin from a wooden butter paddle, for example.
