Letter to ARC

From Blair Baskin

Published before 2005


Hi, I've had my first taste of University art school recently and found that not one teacher has anything to offer except modern art instruction(AKA trash). Get this my Color theory teacher gave me a D in the class after I embarressed her in front of the class by showing she didn't know jack. The students I was with if you could even call them that seemed to be majoring in booze.

I don't think I have to elaborate too much about how useless it was in helping me create a beautiful piece of real artwork. Is it possible that I don't need some stupid BFA which is essentially meaningless and I'll be able to make a living after I complete studies at any of the ARC accredited schools on your list? I don't think I can take four years of going nowhere with my talents and getting some crappy job as an art director for some giant firm.

-sincerely Blair Baskin
