Has anyone here taken Drawing/Painting at University/College? I have interest and took life drawing classes all through high school, but I just don't really see any real benefit of it. I just don't see what academia does for anything outside of licensed work. Perhaps some people learn better when taught by another person (maybe we all do, to some extent) but most of the time it just feels like people are too lazy to learn on their own.
Did anyone here have these type of thoughts, go in and pursue Drawing/Painting in college and find were surprised or found some benefit they couldn't quite see before?
I'm taking a painting class as an elective. I completely disregard any creative pursuit in academia - since it cannot be marked systematically, or empirically it seems to be distracting, at best, in classrooms (in my experience). It's Painting the Human Figure. I believe academia can teach technicality adequately at times.

Lets say you have pure white at 100 and pure black at 1, and 50 is perfect gray. If it add 1% 50 to any color, that color becomes 1 value more saturated.
Now lets say instead of 50, we replace it with 51 (1 shade brighter), and I add it to any color. Would that color then become 1 99th of a value more saturated and 1 value brighter?
Reiterate: Unless working with perfect black, perfect white, and perfect gray, are you inadvertently saturating when darkening and lightening with grays. At the same time you're also brightening and darkening.
One more time: Will dark and light grays saturate while also brightening or darkening whatever color you're working with?
