The Painter Career in The Sims 4

Traits

Character Traits

As we mentioned above, these character traits will be the best to go for in your painting path: Creative, Outgoing, and Genius. The reason for this is because the Creative trait will help you get inspired more often and help you create better paintings.

Then, Outgoing can also make your Sim inspired, as well as train her charisma skill which will be needed later on. And Genius is an obvious one if you aspire to go high in this art. It will make your Sim more focused which is essential for the work.

Lot Traits

As for the lot traits, the ones you should be aiming for are Home Studio, Convivial, and Science Lair. Home Studio is another obvious one. You want your house to provide a creative environment so your painter Sim can get inspired and paint more often.

Convivial helps you with boosting your charisma skill. And Science Lair is an overall helpful trait to make your Sim as smart as possible.

Your Sims 4 keeps crashing? These are the solutions!
