I had proportions and perspective class. Yesterday, I came rushing in only to find out it’s five minutes ‘till 1. I go to my bag and grab my project, which actually wasn’t there. Everybody else turns in their work. Project after project and each one looks rushed and unfinished, most not even mounted.
The class resumed, and so many people were unprepared. They either had no rulers, papers, and some continued to sit there not doing anything for a good hour.
Later on, my sister comes in with my project (bless her) and I hand it in. People brush by to look at it and I get comments like “whoa thats too amazing.” and I got ” wow you went all out on this!” It was not impressive by any means and I’m not just saying that because I’m critical. It was time management. I spent less than an hour on it but the work was segregated into days.
I felt like telling them something,
So many people in that room has the potential to do better than what they turned in. Some were more experienced then others but the beginners who actually tried had a more successful drawing. The time and effort was so much more evident.
It amazes me what people do with their money! It’s really disappointing to see what these individuals are doing for themselves. Let’s face it, art schools are expensive. Why bother going to college?
It’s really sad how some of these students just graduated from highschool and they just don’t care even if it’s their parents money!
The reality of this whole thing is that there’s no use getting angry or upset over it. Nobody can do anything about except these people. They just don’t realize the serious damage. There are many others out there who don’t have the necessary means to go to an art school even if they really want to. I just wish people can see this and help themselves.
A career in art is a serious thing, granted school isn’t necessary to be successful in that field. However, to have the privilege to attend school is something that should be taken into consideration.
Someone can be a really great artist,
but if work ethics are poor and an artist is always lazy, they shouldn’t expect to be in any kind of profession relating to the industry. Work hard, stay passionate, people. All of it goes a long way. No one ever progresses being stuck inside comfort zones.
