Unfortunately, art is inherently subjective.

Which is why tests in school anymore are the way they are, subjective components removed as much as possible.

One, it makes grading easier. Two, it means that you have something to point at that parents can't (validly) object about their spawn's grades.

Alas, that second is *really* important as there are far to many parents who don't want to believe that their "precious" is an idiot or worse.
