Honestly that work is probably going to be seen by you as crap that gets removed from the portfolio within six months of graduation. You might as well push very hard on work outside of class, as that is what will make you successful in the long run. School work is just a tool to teach you what you need to know to do your own body of work.
Regarding your abstract painting teacher...I sure as hell hope they know about composition and color theory..that is a core root of abstract art.
