Censorship can take various forms, especially when high school students are concerned. Sometimes censorship goes overboard, which results in absurd things. Imgur user scopecreepstudio has recently shared what art textbook looks like at Pensacola Christian College, and you'll be surprised. According to what's written on the college’s website, art students are "equipped to share Christ through the visual arts, music, or dramatic performance." The Typical Student team shared the censored masterpieces with you.
Looking At Paintings
Pensacola Christian College founded in 1974, is located in Pensacola, Florida. According to the website, the college's goal is to "train young men and women in higher education for a life of service to Jesus Christ," and to "promote the cause of Christ by providing a distinctively Christian-traditional, liberal arts education that develops students spiritually, intellectually, morally, culturally, and socially." So, this is the book that is "the essential visual guide to understanding paintings and their composition"
The textbook contains masterpieces by artists from Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci to Van Gogh, Picasso, and Dali. As you can see, all the nudity has been covered up in both adults and infants.
Even Mona Lisa didn't escape the censorship, which looks totally absurd:
