Hello folks this is just a general 'HELP ME' shout out to anyone in the UK. Unfortunately the UK's art scene is dominated by the trend towards ' modern ' art where the idea behind the art is the main factor in its success rather than the artists actual skill.
As such EVERY and I mean every art course in the UK from foundation up and beyond degree is geared towards conceptual art forms. As such there is no actual teaching of 19th century academic artistic techniques anymore.
Degree courses are populated with people who cannnot draw. Cannot paint. Cannot sculpt and the teachers on these courses reflect this.
I am looking. No PLEADING to anyone in the UK who knows of a real academic art course or art school. Hell even proffessional artists who are willing to mentor someone in the true artistic fashion of the past.
Please guys can ayone help me?
