Lovely woman, but she needs to become more familiar with contemporary art. I know one must have life drawing skills, but that was the only style she appreciated and disliked anything of another genre
She doesn't have patience for others, she has to realize that we are only learning and not all the next Da Vinci
She was a nice lady but not a very good Teacher as her methods were dated and had no real knowledge of the contemporary art world. She kept to the tried and tested methods.I am an artist now and a sucessful one but unfortunately I cannot list her as an influence.
I do like her personally, but if you go on to an art college, you realise she is a terrible teacher - in comparison to say BCFE or NCAD. She just tells you to draw but she gives very little advice on how to draw, and her method of teaching life drawing is NOT GOOD!! On the other hand she does give a lot of encouragement to go on and develop your skills in college if she feels you are good enough, and her class was very laid back and fun. just my opinions though.
she always encourages students she is a deadly teacher. her classes r de best!!
always encouraged me from the start, such a great teacher. i miss her class and the store room, doss time!!!
Had her for the inter in 86. Only did art coz it was easy, I have zero talent. She was really motherly though, I remember her playing Neil Young to inspire us.
such an easy clas! loved it tho! miss her so much! so much fun xx
loved miss nelson,a lovely woman!A really enjoyable,laid back class.got an a in junior n a B2 in leavin.will miss dat class.d only ting ill miss in dat place!!
think she is a good teacher. very easy to get on with. good laugh as well
I had her for art throughout school. Her methods were very dated, she was a lovely woman but not a great art teacher.
She's a STAR!! So helpful! Being an art teacher isnt an easy job for sure but she's really good at it!
Great class. loved it more than that powder paint stuff exploding down the end of that awl storeroom!
very nice women methods a little old fashioned but has great artistic talent
good teacher but her voice would give you a head-ache.
Was like a mother from home. Great teacher, though not always fair in treatment of others. Could draw though!
ahh she was nice in fairness, v encouraging, bt had to get out of there after the JC for the sake of my hearing, squeekiest voice ever!
Great teacher. Loads of fun and always good for a chat
i gave her a real hard time. one time we were watching a video and i had this remote control watch. had her convinced there was sumthg wrong with it. seanoc
Nice teacher, not too easy on us but that can be good. Good artist. Good in preparing for craft but not for art history but we have the new teacher for that ;)
an excellent teacher, an asset to the school and a brilliant year head
