Dan is a great teacher! He teaches you how to see and is clear about his style of teaching from the beginning. I improved during his class rapidly! He's honest, but very helpful and he loves painting. If you are a figure painter, take his class!

Figure Drawing Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: P

Very traditional&academic.He teaches painting&drawing in a realistic ways. He talks&swears roughly in classes, however that just means he is teaching you something.So u don't have to get offended to his actions,but try to earn something from his lessons.He'll definitely be helpful in your artistic life and I convince him as the best master in SAIC.

PTDW 3030-003 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: P

Dan is a phenomenal teacher. His deep knowledge about observational painting links to his insightful sensibility and extreme passion that inspired me to work borderless and courageous on my own projects. Dan sees the core mechanism in every student's work and provides BEST suggestions working DIRECTLY on improvement of students' artistic vision.

Figure painting Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

This is an essential class for any painter in school that wants to learn observational painting. Dan pushes his students to make honest works of art, and thought he may "hurt your feelings" it is essential to the learning process, because he wants to push you, which is why some students, like myself, take his class more than once.

Figure drawing Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: P

He is the best teacher ever!He cares about his students, in a different way though. He's always honest, he pushes you and never pretend to nice and say your works are "interesting". He always points out the most crucial problems in your work and it hurts. But as an artist you have to be honest with yourself even when it hurts to face the truth.

ptdw200 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

He definitely sees something beyond "what you see,"and it hugely affects on my perspective viewing a work/developing of my own. Sometimes he sounds harsh on students but it makes the point clearer.
