Great Online Art School – Effective Or Not?

I hate this trend of living nearly every facet of life in virtual reality. If not for the demand for graphics in cyber-existence, online art schools would almost be an oxymoron. Art necessitates an exchange of energy; a sensitivity to vibration that is often lost in a virtual world.I live on a farm & work the land with my hands. My daughter plays FarmVille on Facebook. The energy I get from getting my hands dirty is totally lost on her. The only energy she experiences is the energy leaving through her solar plexus as she milks her online computer screen cows with a mouse.

Yes, I know. I’ve heard the stories, too. A healer will send a vibrational remedy though email & the recipient somehow reaps a benefit from it. I won’t say its bunk, but perhaps the benefit is simply in the believing. On the other hand, what do I know? It just seems to me that a field as visual & sensory oriented as art should be experienced in a collective energetic environment.So, what is art? Well other than being one of stupidest questions ever posed – basically, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure – if I were to answer it, I guess I’d have to steal the line from Jef I. Richards: “…we can’t seem to define it, but we know it when we see it.” I like to think that at least some element of art involves personal interaction with someone or something (other than a computer screen.)Art Institute of Pittsburgh is probably the most famous of the online art schools. They offer course studies in just about every facet of graphic & design work, as well as culinary arts.Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/5896131
