I sent a message out about an art club I created for students where I work
today. I am a new member to this group and I got a response saying the
following: (name excluded from the text out of respect for privacy)
<no offense , i'm glad your an artist but I'm tired of being solicited
for help from NON-certified art instructors..... I COULD HAVE GOTTEN OUT
OF SCHOOL A LOT QUICKER had I not taken those 30 hours of pesky art
methods classes. There are plenty of good books out there-buy some and
then read them.
I apologize for asking for help. I can understand people not wanting to help,
but geez I think a simple sorry this is not the proper email list for this
would have sufficed. I am disgusted by this emails attitude, not by the
unwillingness to comment on my question, that is no problem at all.
I may not be a certified art instructor, excuse me, but I am doing a damn good
job at it, and I don't appreciate the insult. A simple no would have
sufficed. I won't bother the group again with my questions.
