The Painter career is one of the career tracks from The Sims 4 base game. It is similar to the Artist career from The Sims 2: University, the Painter skill career from The Sims 3: Ambitions, and the Art Appraiser career introduced in The Sims 3: University Life. After being promoted from level six, Sims will be able to choose one of the two career paths: Master of the Real or Patron of the Arts.

Career LevelsEdit

Description: "Create your own world with a few strokes of a brush! Make a place for yourself in the art world with hyperreal masterpieces or abstract works of unsettling beauty."
