Another Millenial thinking she knows everything. Well “plutosblue” here’s why you’re wrong. Picasso and especially Rembrandt I’m sure lived during a time where student loans were non existent. They didn’t go to Parsons or RISD and come out thousands of dollars in debt, working at starbucks. No, Rembrandt and Picasso studied and most importantly were what you’d call “apprentices.” An apprentice studied under a master of the field until the master decided he was good enough to work on his own.

I’m talking about NOW. You’re talking about hundreds of years ago. I think times have changed, haven’t you?

Alright then, let’s talk about modern artists which have been deemed successful, Damien hurst for example, studied fine art at the Leeds college of art? Just because you don’t go to art school doesn’t mean you’ve learnt anything, and even if you don’t, you don’t progress just from going outside, you learn from other people, art school is exactly like being an apprentice, you learn from someone else and it doesn’t really matter how you do it. And not everyone gets a loan to do it you dumb shit. Not everyone is eligible and some people work fucking hard to go to art school.

No, just no. You don’t get at all WHAT THE FUCK I’M TALKING ABOUT. Yes there are people who’ve gone to art school that have become successful. One of my favorite photographers, Frank Ockenfels 3 went to the New School. But here’s WHERE you’re not getting the point. People have what’s called free will, they can do whatever they want, go to school, not go to school. People, most at least have what’s called common fucking sense, which means that instead of going to an institution (the US Public School system) where people judge you on a totally expressive artform, leave thousands of dollars in debt and work at coffee shops, because school sucked the creativity and motivation from them, they can go live in the world and have places like NYC, Paris or LA be their classroom.

Don’t come at me with one successful person who emerged from art school just to prove your ill thought out point, because I can point you to the hundreds who didn’t. Later
