Kanye West Now Wants To Teach Art
Too bad the School of the Art Institute of Chicago won’t let him
Kanye West has done a lot of things – he’s made millions selling records, he married Kim Kardashian, he’s made even more millions designing some of the hottest shoes since Nike’s Air Jordans and now he’s looking to teach art in Chicago. Well, that’s what he wants to do but the schools in Chicago that he promised to teach at aren’t quite ready for him to lecture.
Buzzfeed reported earlier this week that while Kanye’s groundbreaking Sunday Tweet had people planning their college careers accordingly and giving hilarious predictions of what it would be like to learn from the pop legend, the schools mentioned in the tweet have quickly shut the rumors down.
I will teach a course at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 10, 2018
Bree Witt, the director of communications at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago told Buzzfeed that while they’re “flattered that Mr. West would have an interest in teaching emerging artists and designers at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago”, “Mr. West is not currently teaching at SAIC, and at this time, there are no plans for him to do so."
Looks like the students who were hoping to get schooled by Kanye will just have to reevaluate their plans for now.
