"Tough Grader" "Respected by students" "Inspirational"

I had taken her class with a little background in sketching but she had pushed me in a way that made me strive to do better. She did assign many sketches due but it was the type of hw to really build your skill. Always was so inspirational and showed the best practices for certain techniques. She always gave time in class to work on hw.

I had no skill what so ever at sketching and this Mrs. Riegelman, with her divine patience and guidance helped me to become competent and confident with my illustrations. You will work hard for her, but your skills will develope so quickly. Take her for all sketching classes, she was a blessing to me!

I have had Ms. Reigelman for 3 quarters and I have received an A every quarter. She has helped me improve my sketches tremendously. If you work really hard it will help you improve and she loves seeing you progress. She is my favorite teacher at FIDM and I suggest attending all of her labs. :)

Sketc101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very helpful and clear. She yelled at me for not doing what she wanted, but is dedicated to helping her students. She absolutely does NOT care if your style resembles hers because I was able to develop my own from the two semesters with her and was praised for it. If you're a lazy moron, take someone else.

Nancy Reigelman is quite the teacher you should register for not just Sketch2/3 class but from the get go. If ur planning to pass her class, make sure your sketches are done exactly like hers or forget about that A. Luckily I got that A, but many didn't. Don't buy the sweet stuff, she's quite 2 faced. (P.S. SHe looks like Cruella Devile lol)

To-the-point, knowledgeable, timely feedback, good sense of how much hw to give...HOWEVER grading is inconsistent and unforgiving. Save yourself time and just read her book to learn what I did in the class. Any style other than hers will get you a lower grade on principle DESPITE your career goals/field.

So grateful to have had her for Sketching I. I went into the class having no prior art classes or training, and she helped me so much. The students have a variety of skill levels, but she helps everyone with what they need. The class was hard with alot of work, but definately well work it. TAKE HER.

Mrs. Riegelman constantly teaches invaluable lessons in fashion drawing. She sets the standards high and it makes sense- she is preparing you for the REAL world! Take her class and you will improve and learn new things. She is the total package, looks, talent, inspiration and a really diverse, fascinating brain.

I took her for Sketching 1 and is currently taking her for Sketching 2. She's my favorite teacher so far. She comes around to help out students and has workshops for those who need addition help. It's really hard if you come from or transfer to a different teacher because their drawing styles differ!
