(talkin' mainly about highschool)
There are currently winter holidays and i have noticed something recently.
I have noticed, for myself, that school really interferes with my creativity and with my will to study art in general
I atleast got off my artblock that i had for several months now. I feel like the problem was because of the people i have to socialize when i'm in school and their negative views. Or even the exam period which also sucks. I mean when you're in a place for 9 hours a day you adjust a bit to your classmates and friends..
So not many people take art seriously on my school, or even at all. Everytime i used to draw, people thought i was bragging about it (even though most of the times my drawings were trash) so i stopped drawing in school so other people wouldn't get on my nerves. So i didn't even have time to study art when i was at home because i also had to study for exams
I think that's why i lost motivation, also because of stress and some personal issues. But i'm annoyed i didn't do anything about it sooner
Have you had a similar experience or are in one? I'd really like to know
