I think the points of the jokes are more towards the success rate, like would-be actors.
Art schools are so damn popular.

it is not about that, it is that our society is capable of sustaining a X amount of artists and there are 3/4X really talented people and 5X untalented wannabe deviant-artists.
so there are a ******** of wannabes in the streets and in the internet who have nothing else to do with their time than complainingabout how unfair the world, and as they have the technical means to produce high quality propaganda than any of us they transmit it to us.

It's been proven that a strong portfolio is far more important than any degree when it comes to getting a job creating images for websites, magazines, etc. A lot of people who go to Art Schools often develop a strong portfolio over the course of their college years, but a degree is certainly not as important as a likeable style.

You seem upset. Are you an art student?

Most serious jobs require you to have a degree in the field you're applying for before they even care to see your portfolio. The examples of jobs you're bringing up are things that would be done by a graphic designer, and no company is going to even look at your work if you don't even have an associates in communication or graphic design. Not only does going to Art school provide you a strong portfolio, it provides you with knowledge of what to put in your damn portfolio before you start applying for a job, something you wouldn't be aware of right out of high school, let alone know how to create. Also, if you weren't a complete idiot, you'd be making friends with all the art teachers from the school that would be the ones that hook you up with jobs in the first place. Lastly, it's not about developing a "likeable style", it's about being diverse and flexible in what you're capable of doing.

This. ^^

I've seen artists work right from high school. I'm not talented enough nor consistent enough to do that, (yet), thus Art School. What really bugs me is that little "FULL SAIL IS A SCAM" movement. That neat looking degree with the nice frame on the wall isn't going to find you work. It helps, but what you do after art school is up to you.

I like how so many People hate on Arts, it´s like, Yeah, Art Students are useless and stupid, Imma gonna make tons of money, so I can let someone design me a great House, with Designer-Furniture, have my Walls full of expensive Pictures, spent my Time reading exclusive Literature, watching movies, etc, etc. Where the Hell does everybody think do the Things they want to enjoy with their money come from?

I think its about the art school thing. Art can easily be learned on your own, once you know how to use your eyes and tools. Shouldnt a nice portfolio be better than having a degree in art?

There are too many things to art to learn on your own. Sure, it is possible (hell, nearly everything is..) but it's very hard.
Many people think learning art is just doodling and that's what art student do... when it's not. It's a LOT of work and a LOT of practice and a LOT of theory.

And nearly all decent companies ask for a degree when they hire artists. Also, I, for example, like to feel like a professional in what I do...

I have never needed anyone but myself. I'm not the best, and not super talented, but i know how to get there. Composition, color balance and other balances, depth.. I dont see how this isnt possible to learn on your own. Art is personal. Get your tools and eyes, and make something. When you can that, and full well know what to improve on, what your goal is, and how to make your art your own, and how to learn anatomy and such, then theres nothing that anyone else can contribute with to your art.
My thoughts anyhow

"Design me a great house" would be architecture. Where I come from, that isn't art school.
English literature isn't art, and neither is media...

From what I gather, art school is about: illustration, painting, photography, sculpture, and graphic design.
So it could easily be a gateway to journalism, the film industry, or architecture. But not the main route.
Graphic design, sure, that would be used for furniture design, toys, games, films etc... But I think the point is, there aren't that many vocations available for artists.

I'm a Political Science student...

before entering College of Arts, I already thought that there would be no job for me after college. But I still pursue it, you know why? Because people study to learn, not to get job after. I'm happy about everything I learned in school, I hope you are also.

Hitler couldn't even get into art school and he was pretty successful in his field.

I guess that means everyone in art school has the potential to be a super dictator, I for one think we shouldn't piss them off and just give them weed or something so they just mellow out and do doodles instead.

He couldn't get in, because he wasn't good enough.
So does that mean that only people with a dream but little talent have that potential?

In reality, it's not about the amount of money you make, it's about enjoying your work.
I'm an art student, graduating in two years. I already have a job at a little studio in our town. I can't afford a Ferrari, but nonetheless, I'm really happy, I love what I do.
I know I would absolutely miserable if I went to economics or politics or whatever gives you a good job these days... so what's with all the hate?

It's not like all those chemistry students become great scientists as soon as they graduate.

Art students aren't that bad. I'm an art student (industrial design) and the only problem we artist face is that the jobs available after college. The market and economy doesn't have that much to feature to us and some end up making their own business. While most artist are not actually rich or fortunate, they end up taking the ****** jobs.

Also art students aren't always stupid, they just think differently.

just my two cents :/
