I've spent the last 30 minutes reading about all these awful art school projects and shit:

(bonus: http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/wdc/209064426.html)

Probably the funniest thread on imdb!

This one is a musical fiasco. I was at a student run multimedia festival. The opening act was your typical garage type Nirvana wannabees...or so I thought. It was much worse. The entire act consisted of two of the bandmembers crouching on the ground with their guitars (ala Jimmi Hendrix) and violently strumming to create a constant noice that sounded like the volume cranked up on a TV without a signal. The lead "singer" did nothing more than scream into the microphone, roll on the ground, and combinations of the two. At one point, a fourth band member went on stage and broke a piece of styrofoam over his head. I understood what they were going for, but it came off really lame (try swinging a piece of styrofoam in the air--it catches wind, so the guy had a hell of a time actually getting it to break on the other fellow's head). To top it all off, the thing went on non stop for twenty minutes! Sucked big time
I wonder if those people post on the noise board.

In the good old days people in the crowd would've showed their disapproval by hurling rotten fruit and vegetables at them whilst shouting "get off!"

there is a guy in my class who can draw very well, but his pieces are very kitsch and ugly: basically he just draws girls and monsters in photoshop and gives it a lengthy explanation (we tried to avoid him discussing his work at the beginning of class because he'd rant on for ages). one day a teacher got sick of it and silenced him with: 'you have great skills but no taste at all'

i've had some stupid teachers too. one teacher saying: "i don't like the hands on this, you should change it" one week, and saying "see? those hands are so much better already" the next week, even though i had completely forgotten to change anything about them.

a girl who would only draw fantasy stuff n graphite did an assignment on sketching: make a series that represent your environment. she made a series of pencil drawing of 'me to you-teddies':

 


a graphic design class had an assignment to create a vest for a ken-doll.
second year graphic design. a vest for a ken doll.

someone tried to get his master's degree by living in a shed for a year, scribbling all over sketchbooks, throwing it in a shopping trolley and cutting off his mustache.

and so on and so on!

A live arts student at my uni lived in a defunct ambulance in the campus car park for a year. No heating, even in a really bitter winter. He washed in the river that runs past our uni.

So many stories.

the worst ones are the older ladies that mean well, but they are essenttially crafty ladies, who have taken up painting, but cannot seem to get past the imagery of people like TV painting teachers.

One lady was so detailed, and so exact in her landscapes, but they were lifeless. Just so dull, and she went on fro two semeesters, never changing, never accepting her critiques. It got to be so sad to sit and listen to her speak about what she had changed when visually, it was obvious she had changed nothing

The one time in art class this wanna be Andy Warhol was talking about his piece, which was a penis painted with his penis, and he sounded so full of shit that he actually shit himself in class just to add to his piece of shit art which was the whole point of his painting.



ok I never went to art school but I imagine that's what it would be like.



EDIT:and right under an Andywarhol sig too heheh.
