This is just too good not to send to every teenager that you know. The College for Creative Studies launches an art school campaign that will make Detroit even more proud. Providence, Boston, NYC - your move.
pretty inartistic for an art school ad if you ask me. Pretty sad looking too… doesn’t exactly have me reaching for a paintbrush. It really looks more like a D.A.R.E. ad, which was probably the intent but the message is lost for me. I also feel that it is slightly targeted toward inner city kids or those in a less than fortunate school setting and that ART would be there way out. Self expression and putting the endless boundless ends of your imagination on canvas that reach beyond a depressing poorly lit high school. Even though I may have painted a rainbow bridge to an ivy covered art school in the back, I am not as qualified to say what would reach young adults in this situation. But the question remains… Do people in sad unfortunate circumstances want to see ads of other sad people in the same seat as they are reminding them of how bad they have it OR would a group of smiling likenesses of themselves working on their next Rembrandt’s be more captivating or is it too far a stretch of the imagination that they could overcome their current situation and become the happy, smiling, likeness of their future selves?
