Mr. Artiste's (ridiculous) Art Q&A

3 year old by Brienna Pruce
Dear Mr. Artiste, 

What is the point of art if everyone undervalues the technically skilled work and overvalues what a three-year-old could accomplish?

Sincerely,
Unknown

Dear Unknown, 

Perhaps the three-year-old copycat has excellent connections. The point of art has never been pinned down rationally, but irrationally, it is there to make us ponder why... 

...why do they get thousands of dollars for finger painting and I don't?

Yours truly,
Mr. Artiste

Dear Mr. Artiste,

In drawing class today, our model had unfortunately not removed all of the toilet paper from his nether-regions and was in a rather revealing posture. He was obviously unaware of his predicament and the ladies in the room were too shy to mention it so we all continued drawing as if nothing had happened. Should an artist alert their model of such unfortunate circumstances or did we do the polite thing and pretend it never happened?

Kindly,
Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

Hmmm, good question, however considering the model's current state of undress, it would seem that they have pretty resilient feelings about their body, and therefore mentioning the issue aside might dissuade any potential snickering later from the ladies. I think we have to ask how we would prefer to be treated in such circumstances...

...on second thought, perhaps it's best not to know.

Respectfully,
Mr. Artiste

  2. Haha gross about the toilet paper. I have seen some crazy models in my classes including one that was so hungover and smelled like an ashtray. Oh and we had a famous one at our school. He as known for asking the 'new' artist to hold down his feet while he did sit ups in his unclosed robe. It was a site to see. lol
