Glad there is a space to share my experience with one of the best teachers I've ever had. As a student of color from a multicultural highschool, transitioning to Wellesley high was one of the most difficult experiences of my life. Mr Callahan saved me. He treated me with the utmost respect and challenged my artwork. He created a space for me to breathe and express myself through art. Thanks to him, I am considering going back to school to be an expressive arts therapist for youth.
Dr. Callahan was a great influence in high school back in the late '90s. He was rigorous, but he let me explore art history and different modalities without judgment. He guided me to interesting artists and helped me study the formal elements of composition. I wasn't an obvious talent, but he treated me with respect and encouragement. His projects in the art intensive class were difficult in the best sense, and I worked hard to fulfill them. He is a special teacher.
I Love him and miss him a lot
Dr. Callahan is so cool! He's very kind and helpful. Our art class is very fun and relaxing. I'd rather have meaningful art classes with Dr. Callahan than have a boring free block.
i think hes the hardest working teacher i've had. he puts so much effort into making sure we have all the materials, help, and creative atmosphere we need. very chill, too.
Callahan is one of the most important influences on my career in art. I wouldn't have gone to RISD without him and the fantastic art department at Wellesley. I gave him a 4 in easy, cause art intensive was serious work and cant be seen as "easy"
i love this guy!!!! he is soooo chill and lets us do whatever we want during art class. he is also so helpful :) such a nice guy
Dr. Callahan is a truely nice man and really is in it for helping other people. He loves art and loves to see kids get involved and enjoy art.
tought me so much..... great! My fav teacher! He really pushed me and my art!
sooo nice...really helpful to people who can't draw (like me). really patient, always has good suggestions
You get A's even if you hand in your hw on the last day of schoool and did NOTHING in class at ALL. If you're not in Intensive, then you get A+'s AND NO HW!
i love him! his class is so stress free, and ive come such a long way in it
awesome art teacher for regular non-intensive students.
i had him for dig. art...easy fun class, he goes ot of his way to help you
