I was if anybody in art school is witnessing the huge shift in art?

Yes, specifically in how they teach art. I'm at Columbia College in Chicago. I am taking painting 1 now and this year they changed the curriculum. It used to be all painting from still life. Now it is much more abstract and creative. Our assignments were: a system, make an object from clay and then paint from that, design a monument, and abstract from a famous painting. We briefly drew a still life in class with pastels and I think we will be painting one object tomorrow.
