Questions and Answers for Parents | 8 Major Questions about Art Education-NAIS Master Art Class


With the official start of the NAIS Master Art Class, we have also received a lot of questions raised by parents about the development of art majors and art studies. Among them, we selected some of the most asked questions answer.

1.Do only students with poor grades choose the art major?
Many people think that if they have poor grades, they will take the art path because they feel that the direction of the art will be lower than that of taking a discipline. In fact, art is a major that combines reason and emotion. For example, architecture, industry, urban planning, landscape and other majors require students to have good logical thinking skills and academic achievement. Art is more inclusive and will not be judged solely by grades. It requires comprehensive grades and majors to see the display of comprehensive abilities.

2.Do you have to be talented to learn art?
Not necessarily, because the talent is very mysterious. In terms of artistic talents, one category is extremely talented. For example, famous artists such as Da Vinci and Picasso account for only 1%; The vast majority of people are actually in the middle 98%, so most people ’s artistic ability needs their own knowledge and reading to get creativity and inspiration. This is what many masters often say that art comes from life It is higher than life.

3.Can painting be equivalent to having an artistic foundation?
Many parents may develop their children's artistic ability from an early age, so they will let children learn basic sketching, watercolor, Chinese painting and other courses, but in fact the real art needs creativity and inspiration, which can be triggered by an item or toy. Therefore, the ability to draw only means that it is easier to move quickly on the basis of copying and painting, but it does not necessarily mean that you have an artistic foundation.

4.My goal is RISD. Do I need a RISD teacher?
This issue is the focus of many parents. In fact, students who are admitted to RISD are also guided by teachers. At the same time, not all teachers who graduated from RISD can certainly guide students to enter RISD. And more of these are teachers with rich art professional teaching experience, their own strong professional skills and familiarity with the situation of overseas colleges, which can help students analyze the content of their projects, whether they are suitable for matching, and finally help students achieve their dreams.

5.Should we judge the merits of art schools based on the school ranking?
This is a misunderstanding that most parents will fall into. Many schools will have their own specialty, such as SCAD's interior design, the first in the United States, but it cannot be judged by its comprehensive ranking in this field. For children who choose the art major, the first thing they should pay attention to is the major they are interested in, and then choose the appropriate school.

6. Do I have to prepare the works according to the style of the target college?
The school itself does not have a particularly clear college style, and most will have project preferences such as social, commercial, and academic projects, as well as the school's main research directions. When preparing a project, students can fully combine their own strengths and the main research areas of the school.
