The title is a "true story", I was told several times by my art teachers that some of my photos were not pleasing to look at, and that I should return to my "cute photos" as she called them. Here's some background on WHY she said this. I was, at the time, going to a Christian School, what I took a photo of was this: "It is a cute shot", I told her. She then gave me a rather distasteful look and told me "Those are two MALE manikins and I will not have THAT in my classroom!" Now, I understand what she was saying, but art is art. The title of the photo is now "Love in Universal". Because I believe everyone has the right to be in love with whomever they choose. And it shouldn't be limited by color, race, or gender. I believe that to be true with any kind of art too. (photography, drawing, digital art, anything.) I have had a lot of different teachers tell me what I could and could not show in the art room. Even though they always say "the sky's the limit". having this come from an authority figure really got me down about my art work, causing me to have almost a two year long dry spell. I stopped drawing, taking photos and doing anything that involved art. I now am out of school and back to the full swing of things concerning my art, and photography. Has anyone else experienced a teacher, or maybe even someone close to you telling you to limit your talent?
