If you miss a class you will get a C or lower. Very unprofessional when replying to emails, gets a little attitude sometimes.

ART106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Duffy is a nice person. However, The class gets very boring and repetitive. You can miss two class periods before she lowers your grade. Be prepared to spend many hours a week drawing outside of class.

ART106 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Had her for Beginning Drawing. Loved the class. Make sure you show up and do your homework and you're fine. Also, she requires WAY TOO MANY materials for the course. Buy as you go. Sharing paper and charcoal with friends is highly recommended.

She is so nice! The class can be boring if you don't try, or already know the programs well. She wants everyone to do well, you really just have to do your work. There isn't any outside hw if you use class time wisely. I definitely recommend her, especially if your an art major! for non-art majors or people who aren't serious don't take this class

Don't take her if you are not an Art major even for the 100 level course, she wants art majors only. Will not directly tell you she only wants art majors. Very passive agressive

Art 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Okay...Mary Jane's art really bored me. While I am an art major, the two classes I took with her were very non-art major oriented-that said, she expected everyone to have some kind of drawing talent. I don't draw at all and that shouldnt effect my grade in ART 105. Her grades were pretty unreasonable and she was a dull speaker.

ART 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

I have taken a course that you have taught. The result from me taking that course has had a dramatic impact to how I now respond to art and the related. This impact is one which is very negative and grows with a hate towards almost any form of art as well

B. Drawing Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

I think I'm a Duffy-holic. Actually, she teaches A LOT of the classes req. for art majors. Get to know her well, and then give her your best. She assigns lots of work, but the class is only as good as the students make it. Some great, others not. B+.

Extreamly AWSOME lady. Take the class only if you're into art. She's very cool, I don't know what all these losers are talking about. Very recomendable.

ART 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

ugh. She grades as if everyone's an Art major. If you feel that ur the least bit creative, watch out, she'll surely turn your artwork down.Attendance is mandatory, no absences, no tardies & a great sense of creativity and you'll get a B if you're lucky.
