Today, I finally finished my art project which was worth 50% of my quarterly grade. I came in 1st period to give it to her. When she turned to look at it, her elbow hit her coffee and spilled it all over the canvas. I got 60%. She said I would have had a 100%, except for the giant coffee stain. FML

What is with this "First" crap?? Who cares if you are first! What, do you want a cookie or a medal for being the first to post??? It's not going to happen.

No but some schools have requirements as to the number of electives you've got to pass in order to graduate, so failing it could actually end up screwing everything up.

#8 the importance of the class is not relevant... the point is the stupid bitch deducted 40 points for a mistake she made! seriously from a 100 to 60 that's harsh!! Report her for sure.

Who cares if its not an important class? To some people, it IS, and I know when I did Art in school, my grades mattered to me heaps! I would also be extremely fucked off if some dumb bitch slopped coffee on something I had spent hours laboring over. EXTREMELY fucked off.

Really being creative and being GOOD at it is a rare skill and can easily take you to the top of EVERYTHING... most other subjects aren't that powerful no matter how good you are.

#8: Yea cos all of those people who design catwalk collections and make CD cases for big bands and think up the designs for huge buildings haven't got anywhere in live.
I know it's unrelated, but I hate how everyone thinks that art students are idiots doing a stupid subject, just because we've chosen something fun that we actually enjoy doing there's no need to be mean

Something like this happened to me last year, while my final piece was drying someone accidentally sprayed ink all over it, but the teachers were understanding and still gave me a high mark

Whether the class will get you anywhere or not (and I think that's debatable), if it's graded it still factors into your GPA. I took an art class for fun once, teacher thought my art was too "contrived" and gave me a bad grade. The class means nothing to me, except that it took me 2 years to fix the mess it made of my GPA.

FYL, OP. You definitely need to speak with the professor privately about this, or if not go higher. Try talking to your Dean -- at my school, part of his/her job is to be your advocate in situations like this.


Wow, someone sure doesn't like art. Sounds to me like someone failed art at some point and still hasn't forgotten about it. Just like Hitler. True story, you know. So don't hate art just because you don't have enough talent to pass it. I bet you're a business student.

And try not to forget the importance of art the next time you, for example, sit in a chair, walk through some doors, sip from your mug. Because someone had to design that for you. Art's everywhere. Unless you'd prefer to be living in a plain gray room for the rest of your life you need art.

Really, her coffee spill, her fault. In fact, normally when a teacher makes a mistake like that, they're supposed to automatically give the student a hundred (assuming they actually put in time and effort into it). I think. That's what usually happens over here, anyways.

#8 saying that art won't get you far in life is like saying Picasso and da Vinci were armatures and that all the artists who put their time and labor into the art work it takes to draw up very original imaginative things for your action movies such as DC and Marvel. Apparently art got them all some where. Remembered and known for their beautiful work.
