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

Incredibly insightful. Expects you to work. "What is the artist trying to say?" Loved the weekly critiques--mysteries to be solved! You must show up, you must work, you must apply yourself. What's wrong with that? Skill level not an issue here.Everyone grew everyone learned! We are lucky to have him here.

Mural01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: WD

He is unbelievably rude. I dropped his class because I was too scared to go in and listen to him make fun of me and any other student he wanted, all while calling it 'criticism'of your work. He is truly mean.

Painting 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Professor has worldwide mural painting experience and when he shares specifics it can be interesting. Be prepared for a painting every week. Critiques last the entire class, conversations mostly about world views and politics. Not a lot on technique but you will be a better painter after. He can be harsh but take what he says with a grain of salt.

Painting 2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Insulting, at best. If art is not political, it shouldn't exist, etc. Tense atmosphere in the studio. Inappropriate jokes, offensive critiques.

ART265 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

By far the absolute WORST professore I've ever had. He's rude, doesn't teach, and will not take blame for anything he does wrong. He told a girl he wanted to kill himself after he looked at her work, in front of the whole class! He makes unwanted innuendos, and will intimidate his students when he feels threatened.

MURAL270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Worst teacher ever. He didn't teach & wasted class time. I have a 2 masters & this undergrad class was more work than an entire degree. He doesn't teach & only wants to make fun of students & trash others' art. I learned nothing except to hate painting. He gives you 1 week to paint your individual mural. Got a B, but should've got an A. Be warned.

Art270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He will sound harsh but it is just to educate you at a higher level. His remarks are constructive. He collaborates well with students. He is fun, helpful, and kind. We love him and so will you.

ART326 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Fun professor, but if you take his mural or street art courses they're very unstructured and you need to be self motivated. He'll seem easy because of this, but then out of the blue he'll expect you to have been doing a lot.

ART340 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This guy is a complete *bleep*er. He shouldn't be allowed to teach. I attended class religiously, did everything he asked and just couldn't please him. I had a 4.0 (6 years of college) until I took this class. I graduated with a 3.76. I didn't learn a thing. AVOID HIM LIKE THE PLAGUE.
