Art Intervention

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 11, 2015, 10:33 AM
Hi everyone ( '  ' )/

A lot of people wanted to know how my art intervention goes with my dear Dear troubled friend. She claimed her art professors were bullying her by giving her bad grades on her subjects, she thinks her arts are very good. I openly discussed in the DA forum on how to tell her that her professors are not bullying her and her grades are actually what it represents. She won't improve herself, or rather doesn't think she needs to because too many people are falsely praising her artwork. False praising is dangerous for her because she's retaking the course too many times. She's now on the edge of poverty because that art course is very expensive.

Some of her friends did tried to warned her of the dangerous situation she's in. But instead she took it negatively and ended the friendship. Her claim was that because her friends does not have any art background. So a bunch of us arranged an intervention for her to tell her that she needs to improve her skills in art quickly or waste much more money later. The group included were my friends with a bachelor and master in fine arts, an art teacher, a mangaka, her friend that cared for her, and me.  She wasn't angry this time, but was still in denial. Every time we tried to show her where she needs to improve, she refuse to listen because she claims her other friends said it is ok. In the end I told her if she refuse to listen to us, then I will show her a copy of her artwork to my professor that is a doctor of fine arts and see what she thinks. Well long story short, it was quite a blow to her and haven't talked to anyone since.

Yesterday some random friend of her came to me and said "I heard that you gave some advice to her. Thank you for telling her. You are so nice". ( = w = )>

False praising is very dangerous I suppose. It prevents a person from improving themselves since everyone forced them to believe they don't need to. They will be very disappointed and confused when their works would actually be judged by professionals later in the future. Then they will realized that the people that had falsely praised them are just lying, and this would also harms friendship. So don't do it ok guys? If you are friends, be nice but also sincere.

So that's all I have to say I think. ( =///= )> Have a great day everyone. Bye :iconwavesplz:

To tag a quality deviant: And you’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
