Most art classes are worth it, but some are not.
In short, art classes might help you:
Learn more about art, the medium to which you are accustomed, your interest level, your personality, your interest in how things work, your motivation and your goals
Find an art teacher who is well-practiced in your area of interest, who can help you understand a specific process, as well as how to practice and improve.
Be exposed to something you enjoy—or at least want to be exposed to, if you are a student of any kind. When I attended and completed a course on Japanese architecture at the University of Wisconsin, and when I attended a seminar on film in Los Angeles, they were not art classes. In addition to the art, the students had to take a course in film theory and theory of photography. What did that look like?
Have a positive attitude about your art. Art is beautiful in its own right. You never know what it will make you think about, and it may teach you an interesting or important lesson about yourself, your work, or what you think is important in life.
So when the next art-related job or education search emerges, I’d suggest your first step to go in with a high regard for what you do and the experience you’ve gained while in art school.

Also: Read the new book “A Practical Guide to the Arts” by Barbara Lomarino, which provides comprehensive information on learning to do or learn from art, whether you are doing art as an artist or are learning to do art as a student.
A former South Carolina state trooper died Thursday after losing control of his patrol boat into the ocean off the coast of Cape Hatteras, S.C., officials said.
Trooper Joseph Schulte, 40, was on board the boat late Wednesday night when he was involved in a crash with another vessel, which he tried to maneuver away from as fast as possible, according to Charleston County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Michael Litterst.
Schoep and another trooper tried to get to shore during the incident and Schulte’s foot was pinned in the cockpit when the boat went through the water. Schulte, one of 12 deputies in the South Carolina Highway Patrol for six years, was attempting to recover the boat’s registration plates from the water.
