Stereotypes, whether we like to believe it or not, we all have them. Before coming to Alfred, I always thought that the "art student" was a stereotype all in it's own, but that was a very misguided perception. Turns out, once you put the top art students from high schools all around the world, the "art student" stereotype becomes much more diluted.
This artist, Chuck Dillon, categorizes art students into these groupings: dirty student (as seen above), club student, stressed student, snob/fine art student, environmental hippy student, comic book geek student, brown noser student, loner/alien student, gamer student, student 1.0, anime student, goth/emo student, hip hop student, returning student, metal student, talkative student, average/good student, that amazing disappearing/reappearing student, mom student, winey student, legalistic/christian student and lastly the professor that is often mistaken for a student- student.
As you can see, a stereotype can be broken down into many fragments to allow for all of us to be classified under some kind of absurd stereotype. So... which art student are you?
