Expectation Vs Reality Of Drawing Courses

As anybody who’s been enrolled on a drawing course will probably already know, your ideas about what to expect from your art classes can often be much different from reality. Maybe you enrolled because you wanted to sketch men and women sculpted like Greek Gods and Goddesses, yet ended up drawing people who looked like nude versions of your grandparents. Or perhaps you wanted to learn how to draw a beautiful tranquil landscape while perched on a rock in the countryside, yet actually ended up soaked in rain and battered by the wind. Check out these hilarious comics created by Cassandra Calin for Collegehumor for more funny examples of how a drawing course often fails to match your expectations.

I don't like the figure one. There's just as much art and beauty to be found in drawing someone fat and hairy as drawing someone smooth and muscly. Hell, some artists even choose the former.

It's about expectations, not what is good/ beautiful.

as an art student now I am hoping that the difference between the H and B pencils will not be the only thing I can take away from it :D :D but otherwise pretty accurate

After years of Art School, all I really learned was that while I entered for cartooning, the school does not recognise cartooning as art.
