I've had this happen before! :/ What pissed me off the most was that who ever took my painting did it in a busy art studio. It was there when I came in. I handed my write up and went to pick it up and it was gone.
I know your pain. I had a charcoal still-life that I put up in the Student Art Show at the local community college three years ago. It wasn't listed for sale, so some asswipe stole it right off the wall. Nobody saw nutin'.
I had the same thing happen to me in art class of 08 or 09. I drew the lollipop girl from grand theft auto IV and colored using chalk. by the end of the year, when i showed to get my art work back, it was gone and never showed up!
This happened with my entire GCSE art portfolio so I had nothing to show for 3 years work in end. I cried so hard when I realised it was missing and I wouldn't ever get it back. I gave up art for a long time then because of it.
Ugh, this has happened to me before too. I hate people sometimes. Also, I'm in a program that's jointed between U of T and Sheridan, and some idiot is going around covering nude drawings or paintings in paint in our studio rooms. One of which was mine hopefully the new security cameras will catch this douche. Art thieves/Haters gonna steal/hate!
Ah, yes! I remember a similar situation that also happened to me. I took one of my paintings along with me, went to the dark room to enjoy myself, forgot it there and when I went to get it back, somebody also took it. Such a pity!
Clearly someone believed it to be a good painting, else they would not have stolen it! I have a difficult time with grades when it comes to art...how do they grade you on "creativity?" How can you mark something so subjective as "quality art"? Hopefully you get better professors.
lol this reminds me of a picture i did for class my teacher failed me on. She wanted me to draw someone taking a picture, any everybody else drew someone with a camera. I drew an person stealing a painting of a gallery only to get stop by a guard dog. ya... she failed me for my cerativity
