The biggest trick perpetrated on the modern generation is that you can be taught art. You spend tens of thousands of dollars and they tell you that nothing you do is valid if it doesn't fit into their tight square box. What they don't understand is that art doesn't fit into a box. It's unique, one of a kind just like the people who create it. After all what is art other than an expression of who you are and how you feel? That isn't something you can learn, it's something you either have or you don't. Teachers can't tell you that because than how will they get paid? What will they do for a living? Next time a teacher tells you that your art doesn't fit into their view of what is the correct form, just remember that "those who can do and those who can't teach."
