Rejected November 27, 2009 Today I was rejected form the PHD program at Auckland University….Apparently “I am not ready to undertake advanced level research in the field of fine art.” What is good art? Inspired! Criticisms please. » Journal Comments chrishy22 about 7 years ago oh Im sorry, I think what you create is definately in the category of good, if not bloodly awesome art. no one needs a PHD to succeed as an artist, you just need talent and creativity, which you most definately have. chin up! Cherie Sayer about 7 years ago Thanks for your encouragement! Kara Rasmanis about 7 years ago that is crazy… your work is beautiful…. try somewhere else…. art is so subjective if someone else looks you willget a different result… Pete Janes about 7 years ago Their loss. You have more to gain than they can offer you.
