    I don't think that art can be taught. You can tell the difference between someone with the creativity that can adapt their medium to their vision and those who regardless of medium have no vision to apply it to.

    School Is Being Forced To Care About Nonsense From The Past.

    Maybe I'm a little jealous but I don't think art can be learned, I tried to make the songs I like and I can't, I don't really care for the melody I'm making I just end up making an okay sounding mess a few seconds long with no levels like up or down or slow/fast rich or empty...

    But Love It Now.

    I was an untalented artist until I realized that I was just a "different" artist.  My thing is abstraction and I just couldn't do "perfect" art like the others did so I assumed I was NO GOOD!  LOL, now I see that I was "good" - just not conventional!Irenewww.irenesfineart.com

    Art Can't Be Learned

    Art is what you like, if you wan a big fish covered in bacon covering two giant shoes where a model of your house is, that is what you want... in some way. It means your a god but not as good as god, god just puts so much effort into his art and it's near impossible for us to do...

    Bunch of Jerks

    I'm Done With Art/photo School

    I am graduating from photography school in two months and cannot be more happy. I love what I do. But I guess where I come from, you need to be more "fine art" and more "conceptual". I am a little tired of seeing bad and lazy work make it to the top. It's always all talk and...

    Thoughts on hating art school

    So, I don't hate art school. I'm not going to the greatest art school ever for Graphic Design and Industrial Design - some things could be better. I guess I see opportunity in everything and if I don't, then I create some. I try to find the benefits of my classes in order to make...

    Visual Effects Schools Or Vfx Education! Not All School Are The Same!

    I have to say in my experience not all school are created equal. If you hate your school maybe you are at the wrong one. I have had several friends that have attended VFX schools in Vancouver ( I will not name names but they are the big players, you know who they are) and wasted...
