They don't know. If they did they'd say that it's a waste of time, blah blah, and to be serious about my future :bored:

My parents were very proud, because my grandma used to send my art to TV shows for kids about the age of 3. She told me I used to win many prizes. Grandma keeps all what I have given her, and my mom shares FB albums of my art with her colleagues. They aren't worried about my career choice, since they think I'm eligible for a job in the film industry. They are proud of how I do in school and hope to gather for a scholarship for one of the best film academies, but they trust I could even get it on my own by enterring all those art contests we have here and winning them. They know that I haven't found a match in art in my country and they believe, if I gather enough time, nobody in the world could go against me. I think I am improving in everything thanks to their attitude towards me. They had feared for one period for my success, but I made a back-up plan for my education.

I feel blessed too! But I am so stubborn that even if they didn't support me, I'd do what I like.

My parents hated it. I have been arting since I was like, 4 years old. My mother used to do creative projects with me as a kid like make a fishtank with paper fish but once I got to about 10 she started harping at me that I should grow out of "kindergarten" drawings and stop showing them to her for criticism. When I turned 14 it got worse, they'd confiscate all my art supplies and force me to spend most of my free drawing time with the family because art isn't a legitimate career. I ended up getting kicked out and here I am now in my own private rental still making art, shitting all over their views.

Yeah, unfortunately such an attitude is not uncommon, as I know from other answers.
But your drawings are so nice and I'm sure that many people like them! :- )

My parents don't understand nor appreciate video games, but at least they don't think they're used to worship Satan.

God, I'm glad I don't have that type of family.

Both my parents are very supportive of my hoppies. They feel that I should do something that I enjoy for the rest of my life then anything else :D My dad even trys watching anime with me, he's so picky with what he likes though :P My mom loves watching me draw and loves it when I give her some jewelery I have made :)

I don't have much hobbies... but my mother loves that I work with jewelries since she has had that hobby too.

I do? haha... I hadn't realized that. It's just fun to do. The jewelries is extra fun because I've actually made some money out of it, and even if it's just a hobby, one can never complain if people like it enough to pay for it.

I've many hobbies like photography, painting, making things, writing, learning languages - but my parents know that I only paint. And my dad thinks I've no extracurricular activity :P But I don't mind much... If someday my hobby takes me to some platform, they all will get to know and will be amazed probably. If.

And i'd like to know so many languages. For the present time, I know English, Bengali, French and Hindi. Last time when I was learning French, the institute sacked me after 8 months because my fees was not clear >.<
I want to learn more languages. There are 6 more in my to-learn list :D \m/

I honestly don't know, I've always been encouraged to draw and my parents have brought me art supplies and stuff but I get very little feedback when I actually show them anything I get 'oh that's nice' and that's it.

My dad feels a little awkward when he sees my art but he's very supportive and understands that it's my passion. My mother on the other hand loves to see me work and doesn't feel the slightest bit of awkwardness, she's very proud and is also happy that my art kept me out of trouble through highschool. :P

Overall I'm happy and lucky to have both of my parents support me no matter how weird my drawings get. :)

My biological father thought I was insane and was embarassed whenever I proudly showed him my work. Mom considers it to be a waste of time if it doesn't give me money. Dad doesn't care if I draw, as long as it makes me happy. :D

Well, they're paying $40,000 a year for me to go to art school and be a teacher (both of which are unstable jobs) so i assume that they support me pretty fully.

it definitely not something that they supported right away. My dad still doesn't quite understand it. But sometimes after parents see the amount of years you've put into your work, plus the amount of improvement. They definitely tend to warm up.

"Yeah that's great, as always." Sort of bored by it, it seems. Actually, art is less my hobby and more of the main thing I do, and then the hobbies are the knitting, sewing, etc.
