I have her a few years back and damn she plays favorites hard (based on artistic ability and behavior)
She probably disliked about 90% of my class but she was pretty helpful
It's an art class and Gee expects her students to be naturally artistic
but if you're on her good side then you're guaranteed an A
Overall I did enjoy her class a lot and her projects were quite fun

she's not a good teacher and will put down your work, but if you plan on going into the field, dont be discouraged by her and keep practicing by yourself. she has favorites and if she doesn't like you, you will have a very bad time in the class. she's very unreasonable so you're better off working on your own/not taking the class for the most part

she is a good teacher, at times ruthless, but not as terrible as these ratings imply. just simply follow directions and if unsure, ask for her advice!! if she says you should fix something, DO IT! good luck guys you got this!

Teaches nothing all class and expects superior work from beginners. If she ever does "teach" she talks about useless stuff that only makes it harder for you to finish your work on time.

Actually, she was very inspiring. A few students over a decade ago followed our dreams and now we have comfortable lives worldwide; SF, NYC, LA, Tokyo and all still working in art and design.
Kids these days are lazy. American kids in general have too much freedom. Art school in France and S.E. Asia have a tough curriculum. If you're not interested take another class. Complaints get you nowhere. Her difficulty, discipline and high-demands are for your own good - preps you for the future.

Probably the worst teacher I have ever had in my life. She is so picky and she is a tough grader. If you have the chance, just switch out, unless you are her favorite, otherwise she's gonna try everything to bring your grade down. She talks slow and doesn't seem to be good at English. And she has a boring voice that makes you wanna sleep. We were simply waiting for the class to end. She does makeups even tho she's 60s.

literally the best art teacher I've ever had. sure she's picky in artwork but that's pretty much what art is about. I look forward to her class everyday. I had so much fun and I learned a lot about art. but the thing is I come from a family that's loves art, so I know how to draw. people who don't know how to draw..... ehhhh.... good luck.

I had Mrs. Gee for AP Art History. This class had to have been one of the worst classes that I've ever taken! If you get this class, be prepared to spend money on toner and ink, as she makes you print out countless images to be pasted on index cards. With that said, she is a nice person to her Art History students. But to her Art students she can be ruthless and harsh.

She is horrendous, unnecessarily patronizing, and only as good as her students whose parents have spent thousands on art lessons before they get to her. These are the favorites/Art Center students. If this isn't you, get ready to be a punching bag.

IN her ap studio class now and although i liked the class at first. I find staring at the clock waiting for it to end. She is challenging. She sees all art one-sidedly. Don't hate her but I wouldn't ever take her class again. Ever.

Is she even qualified to give advice to students to help “challenge” themselves? Other teaching professionals from both private teachers\ who’ve had successful design careers to reviewers from national portfolio day have loved pieces that students I know have done in class that gee has completely slammed. Also, shouldn’t doing art for “the sake of art” come into play since this is one of the AP classes that you should have a passion for? You'll get more from Hamel. He actually knows

I'm in fundamentals of art and seriously? she freaking grades everyone as if he/she was in AP studio art which we are NOT. plays favorites and even sometimes just "trying" will bring you down to a low grade if it's not good enough

I've had Gee for both fundamentals and AP Art Studio. Despite her judgmental critiques, I've never seen any work of art come from her hands. I personally did well in her class and thought that she was okay at first, but after seeing the way that she teaches (which is really not helpful at all) my opinion of her sunk. She plays favorites and does not consider that everyone has a different style and and working schedule. I've never had any trouble with my teachers, but I really cannot stand Gee.

She talks extremely slow when giving instructions as if she's still teaching elementary school. She also favors students that are naturally talented at art. Her grading is rushed, glancing at the art and either gives a high or low grade .

Doesn't appreciate art for what it is. It has to look how she wants it to not how you want it to. If she likes you, you're set for the year. If not, you're doomed. If you have a choice, don't take her
