Abandoning that career course, , I realized that I needed something else to make the degree useful. I could have done something additional in interior design, medical anatomy, graphic arts or something else but by itself, the degree doesn’t mean anything. The Doctor April 4, 2011 at 4:32 pm 7 years ago I agree with the idea that “art can’t be taught.” To me, it’s far too subjective. You may be able to teach theory and/or lessons on how previous artists did it, but the actual ‘art’ comes from the person doing it. I laughed out loud at the “disillusioned yet naive youth” part – as though every artist HAS to be so out of step with the rest of those poor mortals that couldn’t possibly understand the fire that burns so deep in their soul.
