Art school is the place where hipsters and art geeks are spawned from the void. Also the birthplace of waiters who are just 'waiting to be discovered'
The average art school student is someone who, having been rubbish at other subjects in school, decides to pursue an artists lifestyle.
When entering the art school these people are happy-go-lucky, idealistic hopefulls who are convinced that they will find a place were they are accepted and their edgy style will finally be understood.
They will all be behind a bar in three years.
Unfortunately, most of them find that people still find people think there art is meaningless shit.
Some of them. however, do reach that ultimate goal. After spending the requisite few years living off their trust fund, they are finally 'Discovered'
This totally has a deeper meaning, and is worthy of discovery. Dude.
These people go on to be famous artists, and win awards. They succeed in having the ultimate lifestyle, living soley on cofee and pot before they die young enough that they're still cool. But not so young that it's really sad.
Around this point. But happier.
Basically, they can declare victory over life.
Some people don't get 'discovered,' but do end up working fairly successfully as graphic designers or people in marketing companies.

These people may not be life's ultimate winners, but they do ok.
These people are the ones who think their art is just 'too deep' or 'edgy' for people to understand. They usually think this from behind a bar.
Usual habitat of art school graduates.
Sadly for them, but luckily for the world of comedy stereotypes, these people are the most frequently found.
