Professor Flynn was extrmely difficult for me. All the drawings I did that I believed was really good (not much of a drawer) she shot them down with ease. Very unclear about what she wants with drawings and when you fill out her statements they tend to be contradicting.

While her classes may not be the easiest in terms of work load, Joy Flynn is the most supportive teacher I've encountered so far at SCAD. She really cares about her students, and if you are struggling with something she will listen to you and help you to the best of her abilities - this goes beyond classwork! I highly recommend her as a professor.

great teacher, you will learn alot from her if you are willing to put effort and work into this class. she is demanding but reasonable, and will grade you based on your own work not compared to others. i would take her again in a heartbeat but its not a course if you are lazy!!

Unclear, difficult, and not all that helpful. When I first tried to sign up for her class, the only one available was an 8 am; I took it in a heartbeat. I hated every second of class.

Flynn is rather strict in what she wants and requires, but it's all for good reason. She breaks down the fundamentals of drawing in order to explain certain things. Although she's not always extremely clear, it's mostly a matter of paying attention and asking questions. I learned so much from this class- I'd gladly take her again!

Prof. Flynn was probably the best professors I have ever had. Her class is tough, but you will learn, and improve a lot if you do the work. She is very helpful and a great person.

Professor Flynn is a must take while attending SCAD Savannah. Had her for Drawing 2 & On A Theme her lessons were invaluable. Flynn's technical ability for the arts (not just drawing) helped to broaden my personal media selections. She is a fair grader too, just keep your lesson in mind.

Professor Flynn is great. I'd recommend her to anyone needing to take Drawing II. She cares about her students both in and outside the classroom. She provides in-class tutorials for each project explaining what she is expecting with each assignment. She also gives you a "one-time late" coupon which is nice to have when workloads get stressful!

I hated this teacher with a passion. For someone teaching Drawing 1 to a film student I felt she expected way too much and was extremely difficult. She actually told me "if you do everything that I tell you, you will get a C" and you know what I got a C. During the midterm review her advice to me was just SCAD's tutoring program.

Incredibly helpful. I would recommend her completely. She is really into the idea of "fine arts." If you are a true artist who loves to explore mark marking and loves using charcoal, Flynn is the teacher for you! Worth taking kind of class thanks to her!

One of the BEST professors I've had the pleasure of taking. She is very hands on and is willing to help her students out whenever they need it. You WILL work for your grade! She grades on how well you can draw and how far you've attempted/improved. Overall, she was a fantastic teacher!

Joy Flynn is easily among the worst professors I have ever have ever taken. While she is an awesome artist, she is a HORRIBLE professor. First, her oral and written instructions frequently contradict. Second, her input when "helping" is vague beyond use and refuses to elaborate when asked to. Finally, her projects are simply put: boring.

Great professor! If you put time and effort into your work and it shows, you'll do great. She's very helpful and always has cool new techniques to show in her demos. Very kind, classy lady.

Drawings are very time consuming but she gives a lot of time in class. She will offer help but you must ask for it. A wonderful Professor to take any drawing class with.

Awesome Professor. Just listen to her and follow her instructions. If she thinks you've improved from Draw 100 to Draw 101, you'll get an A :)

She can be very harsh and very strict on deadlines. She is very particular about craftsmanship, especially the coversheet. She definitely has a few favorites and can be quite catty. Sometimes for smaller projects, she isn't clear about how they are marked, by quality or quantity, and that can be annoying.

most of the people that gave professor flyn sad face rattings were most likely those students who dont become involved with learning and simply dont value and art education in general because i find it hard to see how anyone who is open to learning about drawing can hate her class. twas excellent. my love for drawing doubled after taking her class
