These Art Projects Didn't Exactly Turn Out Like They'd Hoped

We're all born with different talents. Some of us are good at sports, some at mathematics, others excel at music and a lucky few are artistically gifted.

Then there's another, less spoken truth. For everything that we are good at, there are at least a dozen things we're not so great at.

Normally, it's the things we're good at that get talked about and shown in public, but in these 15 images, we're going to celebrate the opposite.

Each of these art projects failed spectacularly and produced hilarious results. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we did.

1. The Odd One Out

The Chive

It's sometimes quite difficult to get a certain effect, but it's not hard at all when you're simply not playing the same game as everyone else. 

2. A Little Morbid

The Chive

Take one beautiful skyline, what's missing? According to one artist, aliens and graveyards. Plus, a bonus ghost and the planet Saturn. We have no idea why.

3. Everyone's A Critic

The Chive

Let's be fair, the artist here is four. He did better than we would have done when we were four. In fact, he did better than we would have done now.

4. That Awkward Moment

The Chive

Everyone else gets a realistic looking wine glass. You get a sort of off-color coconut. So you stand in the middle hoping no-one will notice. 

5. Faces, Not Their Strong Suit

The Chive

You can see that a lot of effort went into these sketches, but there's definitely something to be said for learning to draw mouths and eyes properly. 

6. Black Magic Fail

The Chive

Unless this is seriously dark satire, this feels more like a cry for help than an honest attempt at an art project. We're glad we don't go to school there, though.

7. It's Not Big And It's Not Clever

The Chive

That's because it's a howling mad gorilla thing. It appears somebody wasn't paying attention when the assignment was being read out to the class.

8. Beloved By Generations

The Chive

Winnie the Pooh discovers what it's like to be the victim of biological experimentation in this art school project horror show. What were they thinking? 

9. Just Didn't Bother

The Chive

This is what happens when you don't go to class for a whole semester and then you do your final art project in the last 5 minutes before it has to be handed in.

10. Almost

The Chive

The birds may not have been the artist's best effort, but why the squid-pig hybrid? In fairness, that's actually pretty good, too. 

11. Gifted Child

The Chive

There's always one, isn't there? Everybody else is painting snowmen from a normal perspective and then there's the genius painting one from the inside of a black hole. 

12. Bat Signal

The Chive

This one almost feels like the guy is gatecrashing the rest of the art project. However, nobody is looking at him funny, so maybe not? 

13. At Least He's Honest

The Chive

This more senior gentleman appears to have decided that his art will just cut to the chase. We'd love to see their faces when it's revealed to the group.

14. Where Do We Begin?

The Chive

The artist has publicly acknowledged this as a failed piece. but we're not even sure what it was meant to be in the first place.

15. Not Everyone's Cup Of Tea

The Chive

This isn't actually so bad, but we know that many other people won't agree with us. It's a matter of taste and appreciation, we guess. 

It's cool to have fun with something even if it's not your strongest suit. We really enjoyed all of these pieces. Didn't you?

16. Seeing What's Not There

Life Buzz

Art classes may not be the right place for everyone to allow their talent to bloom. This is doubly so if you keep seeing imaginary volcanoes.

17. Won't Somebody Think Of The Animals

Reddit

This isn't so bad if the artist had just left those bizarre creatures out of it; it would be quite good as a landscape. But they didn't.

18. Going Batty In Class

Reddit

You know that someone has had enough of art classes when they send up the bat signal in their paintings. We're not sure Batman keeps an eye on this kind of thing.

19. Not Really Giving 100%

Reddit

It's clear that both of these paintings are of the same thing. It's also clear that the girl in the photo cares rather more about the task at hand than the boy.

20. Someone's A Little Angry

Reddit

Maybe the second image is art as therapy? We certainly hope so. Otherwise, we hope that the teacher never lets this class play with craft knives.

21. There Be Dragons

Reddit

We have to admit, we think that dragons brighten up pretty much every painting but they probably don't belong in a pleasant scene depicting balloonists over a mountainside.

22. I'm Going My Own Way

Reddit

There's nothing wrong with that 5th painting except, of course, that it's of something completely different to all the others. Maybe the artist felt the place needed brightening up?

23. Don't Drink The Subject

Life Buzz

The painting and the glazed look on her face suggest that this lady might have been drinking the subject before she started work. That's naughty.

24. The Octopus Of Shame

Reddit

We have no idea why someone would decide to substitute an octopus for a vegetable, but somehow, it works. This might be silly, but the person can paint.

25. Sorry But What Were You Thinking?

Reddit

Then there's always the guy who just isn't playing the game at all. We have no idea what he thinks he's doing here. Sorry.
