I find your piece interesting and beautiful!  I really like the blue-green border around the white face area. 

As far as your teachers, I think that teachers of professions that are very competitive and difficult to succeed in tend to be harsher on their students.  My friend was a journalism major and she said all the professors were very critical and almost discouraging.  She's said, looking back, that it was good because it prepared her for working in a very subjective and competitive industry.

Those who do, do... those who can't, teach.

Not always true, but enough to bear repeating.  It looks fab, but coming from graphic designer land here, a bit unbalanced.  But as it's fabric arts, not adwork, i obviously know nothing lol! 

Do you feel you're learning from the professors?  If so, stick it out.  If not, maybe look into appenticeships, etc, and learn your own way. Cheesy  That's what my hubby and I ended up doing after I was spending so much money and time in class not to learn everything.

Big collection of Kenmore presser feet to swap/trade/sell!!  Ruffler foot, etc.  Please PM for details!

When the instructor asks you if it is finished, just say yes. I agree that they try to get people to drop classes just to see who is serious and who is not.

You should be proud of your work. I've taken quite a few textiles classes when I was in school, and I loved them dearly. Of course, my instructor was way cooler than yours is!

It's just building character for you as you progress in your art work. There are a lot of critics in the real world, and you should be prepared for that.
