Title pretty much says it all! When art teachers hate anime and manga, or even you! Keep in mind that this video focuses on the high school years as you watch. Have you guys had any similar experiences in school? Doesn't matter the year or if it was even college or university. I'm sure there are plenty of opportunities for teachers and professors alike to hate on someone! LOL :) I hope this video helps some of you guys out there!
Is there more to this story? Of course, there is what we present as the creator of the video but there will always be more than what we're able to record. Due to certain comments I guess I'll delve a little further into the story. Here are some questions you guys had:
Q- I'm totally afraid to go to high school now!
A- Don't be! There will always be good teachers and bad teachers. I LOVED my college professors. You might have a teacher just as supportive as one of them! Keep your chin up and keep going! You can do it.
Q-Why is this video so negative?
A- It's a negative topic that I'm addressing. I'm hoping by talking about something that was a negative experience for me, it will help someone going through a similar situation. In that way, it's positive.
Q-You obviously failed because you can't follow instructions.
A-I followed instructions to a T and never talked back. Or in class, or ever really. Damn I was a good kid. LOL
Q- How can you say you were better than the other students in the class?
A- As I said, I'm not an artistic genius, I actually believe everyone in high school sucks despite how relatively good they are. This is only because at this point in your life, it's the infancy of being an artist. It's the beginning of your art journey. Over time you will improve and look back upon yourself and say, "hey, I really sucked." It's just a natural point of progression. I said I was better than a large portion of the class because a large portion of the class took art classes for an "easy A" and were very outspoken about it. There is a huge difference between someone who comes in and spends extra time to work on a piece and someone else who sits there and talks the whole time, barely looking at their paper.
Q-GOD YOU SOUND LIKE SUCH A TERRIBLE CONCEITED PERSON WHO IS TOTALLY FULL OF YOURSELF, YOU'RE SO SNOBBY, BLAH BLAH...
A- Blah. This video was about me in High School. I was much younger back then and my personality was much different at the time. I was a very quiet girl who got very good grades in school. I completed EVERY assignment I was ever given to the best of my ability. I was a "try hard" sorta kid and always went out of my way to get my work done. I didn't have a voice back then and people walked all over me. Now I have a voice and I tell a story from an unheard perspective. If you want to think I sound snobby, I can't help that. I personally think I come across as firm, but whatever. lol
Q- You're making fun of the art teachers!
A- Nah, where did I do that? If you're talking about the fish head paintings, I'm criticizing them not teaching, not their art. I could give a damn if they drew fish heads on their own faces.
Q- They are "bad teachers" because they had to buy their own supplies and do art to fund their own classes. You're so insensitive to the plight of art teachers!
A- Actually, my school is located in one of the wealthiest counties of America. We have passed the school budget many, many years in a row. They have added many wings and buildings onto our school system. We had a lot of money going through the school system so it was never an issue. Teachers START and receive 70 grand a year. Then they start their "steps" and many of them receive far over 100 grand a year. Money isn't an issue here. I'm also not insensitive to the plight of art teachers and funding. A lot of schools cut back in the art department and that's terrible. Makes me really sad. :( But yeah, totally not an issue when I was in school. In fact, they were looking of ways to spend the money so that they would get the same amount next year. If they had excess money, it would be cut from the budget the following year.
