Have you ever sent your art in to your schools art-show and had it rejected because the teacher simply didn't like it?
I spent hours drawing my anime poster for my high-schools art show (It took two 6B pencils to fill in the background). The teacher gave it back to me saying: "I'm not going to allow this non-american cartoon crap into my show"
yeah... I was pissed!
So Tell us about your experience!
and if you still have your picture, show it here so
it can get it's time in the spotlight like
it should have had!
Agh! That's downright terrible what the school said! "Non-American cartoon crap"? Do these people have any perception of art whatsoever? There's so many things wrong with what that teacher said that I don't even KNOW where to begin, but in short, they're stupid, and I for one think your drawing kicks ass.
@ Kisara Ritsuka Kaur: thanks!
funny story about that teacher though... the next year he got arrested for allegedly molesting some boys in his photography class.... what a douche!
Then again it seems like in every school there's at least one teacher who...probably shouldn't be around kids.
Every school I've been too there's one/a few that have some ugly pedo-charge rumor floating around them. *shudders*
In seventh grade I submitted a sketch for a year book cover contest in my school but my drawing was rejected because it was "too detailed." The jury was the year book class.
lol! that's messed up!
That's the dimmest thing I've ever heard. Do you know how limited art would be if we could only use movements and styles started or popularized exclusively in America?
That teacher should be smacked.
Whoa just read the bit about molesting boys 0.0!
Sorta puts the art snobbery into perspective doesn't it XD
