Well... both are true

Most people who complain never really gave the teachers a chance though, they just shut everything out after the 9th grade and made assumptions for the rest of their time at school.

but what about art teachers?

#38 - Unimaksu (09/11/2015) [-]
my art teacher gave us an assignment "what is art" to which i relplied "art is a physical representation of an emotion, it's purpose is to invoke that emotion in others" and she gave me an F and said "art isn't that simple" so i told her she didn't understand art. i eventually failed the class. so yeah, art teachers can be like that too.
#41 - thatonesouthernkid (09/11/2015) [-]
well your teacher was correct, but she was wrong to say that your explanation of it is incorrect. what you said was right in part, but it doesn't account for all the kinds of art that serve a purpose other than evoking/representing an emotion. some art movements, like dadaism, don't have any kind of emotion or meaning behind them at all. they are just there. the point of dadaism was to protest the enormous amounts of publicity that the public was giving to pieces that had no kind of creative process or thought put behind them at all. there were people paying millions of dollars for a canvas that had a blue can of paint thrown at it. and the artists who still used technique and skill decided to create a movement to protest the public's behavior. which led to the creation of the most famous piece in dadaism: the fountain, shown here in the photo. it's literally just a urinal layed on its side, with R. Mutt's signature. however, the movement backfired when it gained lots of publicity and the fountain ended up being sold for millions.

by your explanation of dadaism. the emotion it is meant to evoke is outrage. you don't protest something that doesn't offend you.

#43 - thatonesouthernkid (09/12/2015) [-]
you could take it like that. but that wasn't the point behind the movement based on what I've been taught. it wasn't a successful movement though, so your interpretation is understandable of why it backfired.

My art teacher constricted my creativity to where I stopped drawing for several years
#11 - selfdenyingbeggar (09/11/2015) [-]
Some are failed artist who love to criticize and feel superior to their students. But most of them really want to bring out your creativity. But I was referring more to the normal school system and discipline and teaching methods

#12 - thatonesouthernkid (09/11/2015) [-]
I know. I was just being a smartass.
But I would say that even the most critical of art teachers have their benefits, one of the meanest I've ever had also made me strive to hone my skills.
#13 - selfdenyingbeggar (09/11/2015) [-]
**selfdenyingbeggar used "*roll picture*"**
**selfdenyingbeggar rolled image** did it work? I think the whole hyper critical=better is a trap. Like in that movie... the one with the drummer... and j.j. jameson. Anyway, when I dance, as in uncoreographed stuff, when I treat myself right and compliment myself it starts to come out better on it'ws own. If I'm critical of what i'm doing I kill my creativity.

it worked with this one particular teacher and he's honestly the only one I've ever ran into with a rep for being "mean" . not because he was insulting our ideas or anything, but because his class was more of a "learn to draw right and not like the talentless weaboo who only draws erotic naruto fanart" type of class. if you've ever seen this picture while on here, his class was basically teaching you how to draw like this.
#17 - selfdenyingbeggar (09/11/2015) [-]
Ohhh. Well I guess you could say he was a perfectionists when it came to the standards of your technique. That does sound useful, thanks

He sounds like a cool guy. It was an internet class?

no, i took his class in school. saw him everyday, and there was one point where I didn't have to look at the paper to draw something.

woooahhh. How long did it take?

#23 - thatonesouthernkid (09/11/2015) [-]
one school year. but that skill is less impressive than it sounds, you still have to look back down and place the pencil where you need it to make the next line.
#40 - selfdenyingbeggar (09/11/2015) [-]
Still, that's pretty cool. No skill appears impressive when you master it. Good job!
