ARTS369 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

She was terrible and quite lazy. I am so glad she has been replaced. I was her TA and I taught most of the classes because she never bothered to show up. It was ridiculous.

I took Ginny's courses Photo 1-4 so I'll give you an accurate and honest opinion. Photo 1 was one of my favorite classes, got a 3.7. Every semester, I gradually lost more interest. If you love photo-take the classes. If you expect a good professor-you'll be disappointed. She's a terrible, lazy professor and only shows up to maybe 1/4 of the classes

ART001 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was fine for photo 1, but now I'm in photo 3 and I cant stand her. She doesn't get around to helping everyone and doesn't expect you to make art, she just wanted you to make something "cool looking".

ARTS380 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Ginny is very helpful and is always willing to give you input if you show you are working. Take lots of photos, take risks and work hard--you'll benefit. She's gives fair grades and has a great personality. However, photography is an expensive class. Photo 2 was cheaper than photo 1 because you can use old negatives.

PHOTO1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ginny is a wonderful professor and really knows her material. Her class is very technical and you'll learn all about the chemicals and their functions, your camera and its functions,darkroom, studio, etc. Make time to work 1 on 1. She'll help w/ anything.

She was clear, enthusiastic, inspiring, and fair. I really loved this class and wished I could have taken more from Ginny--She rocks! She shifted my view of photography from mere picture-taking to creating fine art. And, by the way, her website, GinnyLayne.Com, is also awesome.
