Professor Lopez students will recognize this. Not bad and meets minimum professional standards. This means you have attained great success in your critique. He really tries to teach us a sense of problem solving. One is never really finished. You could have tried one more solution. Get into one of his classes --don't miss this brilliant teacher.

MLS699 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This is a class that covers the three tabus of western culture. Dr Lopez teaches us to critically construct and deconstruct the semiotics of how and why tabus exist. He tells us; To deconstruct the master's house you have to use the master's tool. Best class ever.

Professor Lopez is the best teacher I have ever had in my entire college career. His classes are interesting and his perspective is refreshing. He makes me want to enroll in school again full-time. Do not leave UM without taking one of his courses.

Dr Lopez makes me want to work harder. If he were to ever tell me the work is up to minimum professional standard I would cry. He really is the best teacher I have ever had.

Tom is the best. His class is a perfect mix of esthetic, technical and critique. I only with the school of com could have someone this good. Halfway into the semester I have learned more than in three years in other classes.

Dr Lopez is amazing. He lectures without any notes. He spins a thesis from point A to point C with interesting spin-offs. Just when you think you're lost he links all the elements and you are left awed by the beauty of his argument. bravo

ART 410 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the greatest and most challenging classes I have taken all 4 years at UM. His classes are thought-provoking and extremely interesting. His critiques are so informative, he spends a lot of time not only discussing the print quality and technical specs but commenting on the concepts and thought behind the photos. Really a brilliant teacher

ARH107 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

How often do you find a teacher who is rated as being quite hard but still has such amazingly positive feedback? only with this guy. He not only knows what he teaches, he's lived it. Half the time he is telling personal anecdotes about the photographers you are learning about. Good luck not falling under his spell.

I took Dr Lopez' this past semester. I really learned so much. I am applying to grad school in art after getting my degree in architecture based on his passion and knowledge of art. I want to know as much as he knows.

Best Art History class ever. Best part is when he says - as a side note - and proceeds to tell an anecdote of a famous photographer that he knows as a friend. He's better than the textbook.

Wow. They said he was awesome. He is. They said he doesn't praise much. He doesn't. They said he would make me crazy. He does. I cannot wait for the next class, the next lecture and the next critique.
