It's not just art teachers. I've had history and english teachers who did things like that. They wouldn't even read all the papers they got. On opinion questions they would just find out what side of the argument you were on. If your side wasn't the side that they thought was right you would fail or get a D, depending on the length. If you agreed with them, they would actually read the paper and grade based on quality. One of them even admitted it to the class.
I would ask if she was being serious, if it was legit her fault, she should take the blame.

Well, everyone knows art teachers aren't the sharpest pencils in the box. Don't even bother trying to explain the logic (illogic?) of the situation to her. But don't worry about it... grades in an art class aren't worth anything anyway, whether it's an A or a D. It's not as though the class will get you anywhere in life.
#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.
Same. 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.
