Dear Dish It, Why Did My Sister Get a C in Art?


Dear Dish-It


Dear Dish-It,

My sister (she's 13), got a C in art. I don't quite think it is fair to give a child a C in art because art is a kind of style, it's not like math. Art is if you like that style you like it - if you don't, you don't. Now, I can understand if she didn't do her projects then she could have not done very well, but I helped her on her projects. So what I was asking you is why do you think this teacher might have given my sis a C? And also if you think it is unfair as well? If you don't think it's unfair, that's ok, but explain why. Hope you get back to me soon!

Dear lollpopbabi,

Art definitely is a very personal thing. Some people love artists like Picasso and van Gogh, while others prefer Anne Geddes' photos of Celine Dion and babies dressed like flowers. Each piece has its own style and appeal, and can be very different from each another.


There are many possible reasons for your sister's teacher giving her a low mark. Maybe she wasn't a fan of your sister's style, but hopefully that’s not the reason. Or maybe she didn't think that your sister used the specific techniques that she was taught in class. And sometimes just doing a project isn't enough to get a good grade. While art is in the eye of the beholder, there are still rules and guidelines that need to be followed.


Get your sis to talk to her teacher. Get her to ask why she got that grade. And get her to ask what she can do differently next time. Even if it is that the teacher doesn't like her style of artwork, at least she'll know how to get a passing grade on her next project. Hope this helps!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .
