    why do you want to know? are you a cop? are you slyly trying to investigate kids who do illegal stuff who are in art school? or...do you just want to find out about art schools...

    dude, im just kidding
  6. It's really dope. Not for everyone, though. There's a lot of people who hold their art very personal, and don't like the thought of having teachers telling them what art is or how they should do it. That hasn't been the case for me though. Beer,

  7. Put aside the people you have to deal with (the majority of wannabees that appear everywhere) and its cool, it can get really annoying sometimes but at the end of the line (where i am;) ) its good.

    the good: 1.the ladies, 2.there are hardly any exams(unless you're an art history major), 3.you progress much faster when surrounded by other like minded individuals

    the bad: 1.most instructors are completely worthless. if your actually studying art (ie. painting, drawing) you're probably going to get some old fart who has achieved "substantial" fame in the art world as an instructor. they will often spend most of their time telling you about themselves and what they're doing rather than teaching you what you're paying them for.

    the ugly: 1.critiques. this is where you present your work and 90% of the class goes "it's nice" or make some other worthless comment along the same lines. i've even had instructors who refused to offer any constructive criticism. 2. Egos. you have to deal with a lot of pretentious, big-headed fucks that do nothing but talk about themselves.

    rock on.

    Yeah thats true. I go to a commercial arts school, and it made me hate the thing i loved most, for a while. I felt like a sellout. Commercial arts.. like advertizing, graphic design.. all b.s. come with bullshit clients. It pissed me off having people who know nothing about art or what I do tell me I drew her thighs too thick, or that pink isn't pink enough, or to center something I made uncentered, on purpose.

    But then i'm like, hey man.. whatever sells. As long as I don't have to design any abortion flyers giving a two for one discount, or ciggerrete ads.. i'm happy with whatever helps me buy some new paint brushes and paint. I'm planning on going to a fine arts school later on in life.

    got money???????
  14. Jan Ulrich nailed that shit to a T. And Dee, I planned to sell out right from the start, haha. If it were up to me, I'd go into painting and live like a hermit in a wooden shack in the Virgin Islands, living off whatever I fish in the morning.

    But I also want to someday start a family and have a kicking sound system and all that shit, so I opted for industrial design instead. Beer,

    $$I.D is where the money is.$$

    the truth is, if you want to be a painter, i wouldn't even bother going to school. i was in a studio art program for a year and i learnt absolutely nothing from my instructors. i improved simply by being around other artists who motivated me.

    i suggest studying art history(knowledge is key to success) and then trying to surround yourself with other working artists. sharing ideas with peers is often much more beneficial than the instructor/student relationship.

    beer indeed.
