My semester is officially and totally over at long last, and holy crap you’ll never guess what happened.
We had the final assessment today, I knew I was gonna be fine mark-wise, but then they went and GAVE ME STRAIGHT FUCKING A’S FOR ALL ART SUBJECTS.
Okay, so I know this doesn’t sound like anything special. I graduated hs with honours yadda yadda, I know straight A’s aren’t unreal. BUT GUYS.
They DO NOT give people A’s in drawing and painting. They DON’T. In Stroganovka, they don’t go easy on any students, ever, they give E’s and F’s to whole groups because praising students too much isn’t good for them, NOONE gets an A because we’re just mere students and they evaluate our work on the level of artists and not students, there is literally no slack. 1 person out of a hundred people gets an A in drawing or painting. Because the general premise is that we all suck to begin with and we need to get better.
In a Russian art school, noone will sugar-coat crap for you.If you suck, you will be told bluntly, and your mark will reflect it completely. Noone asks teachers to be positive, they’re not obligated to praise student work, they can completely trash an entire group if it’s not good enough. So like. You understand. They have literally no reason to give an A to someone unless they seriously think they’re really really good and I just HOW, WHY, I’M NOT NEARLY GOOD ENOUGH, I’M SERIOUSLY NOT, I ALWAYS THINK MY WORK SUCKS.
I literally didnt think this would be possible, EVER. Don’t get me wrong, I cultivate an understanding within myself that marks don’t mean shit, your evolvement does. But this is like HOLY CRAP. This is like, a completely unreal case. Like I’ve literally never seen this happen to ANYONE, WHY ME I AM NOT WORTHY.
I’m gonna retake history of art and if I manage to do well, I’ll get a REALLY big freaking awesome scholarship. Holy crap.
