Why doesnt Art make money?

When it comes to things like sports, technology, songs and all these things. Why do people who are in these fields make more money than artists? Do you have any reason for that? There are many people all over the world who are extremely talented in drawing/painting but they just dont get rich like sports people and singers do! Why do you think this happens? Thanks!

Because our society is not interested in painters and artists. To get attention now, you have to be a singer, in a band or into acting. Painting almost seems a thing of the past, it's interesting to think about though, how centuries ago it was the painters and artists how inspired others and were admired. It all depends on the culture and ours has moved on from that, unfortunately. If you're an artist, I'd suggest to develop your skill on the computer. Drawing on a computer and/or animation.. designing, photoshopping, etcetera. I think that's the only way that profession right now pays and might actually take you somewhere.
