She likes art that seems dramatic and treacherous, put a lot of eyeliner on your figures, quotes about being a lost teenager, and spend time making your work look polished. Learn how to draw and paint outside of her class (plenty of tips on youtube etc.). Otherwise, expect lots of attitude and jokes about your taste. Develop thick skin and keep it friendly. Not a creative class, but it's her formula for getting you into art school.
Mrs. Curren was the toughest teacher I have ever had. She was extremely knowledgeable and was very straight-forward- she either liked it or hated it. One thing I hated about her was that she graded ba
i love you. i say hi to you almost everyday and you kick me out of your room. i have never had you but your still my favorite teacher ever (even though you said you wouldnt be my valen
Best teacher I ever had, inspired me to study art history here at Cornell.
she is very harsh with grading but in her art classes (not art pod) she really helps you with her critiques and inspires you by introducing you to other artists.
had curren for all four years of high school and i loveeee her. yes, she is tough & she did make me cry a few times. but she is like a mother, and really takes everything personally a wonderful heart
She is a very demanding teacher, but I learned a lot. She is a tough art grader, but if you do chapter reviews you should pass with a B or C. She does care about her students a lot though.
i love ms curren but i reallly am having trouble liking her class ive never seen anyone as passionate about art in my life. 9th graders BRACE YOURSELVES
I've never had a class with her, but I went on the trip she led to France. She's an awesome person who knows a rediculous amount about art. That said, she is intense, and she can be intimidating.
very self-involved, and takes things too personally, thinks everything is an affront to her dignity. But she really has students best interests at heart, like a bossy mother hen.
hardest grader in history, she's just unfair to students who try so hard but aren't good at art. her assignments are RIDICULOUSLY long for 9th grade and she's messing up my GPA.
She's an enthusiastic, interesting teacher. She's one of those teachers that lazy kids don't like, but any good student (not necessarily good artist) will like her class.
She's a great teacher. she prepares you very well for the AP Art History test. The class is hard work.
alrite, her class was hard, however, she prepares you for the ap art history test. her average is like a 4. so, if you want a 4 or 5 on the ap, shes the one to go to
i used to hate her class, i would DREAD going to it. this semester i loved her class. i realized that part of the problem was me. i really had to work for that A but it felt so good afterwards. as much as i hate to admit,i did learn a lot in her class.she DOES care about her students. its tough love
Great teacher. Fun. Deal with it if you have a problem with her, you're just not willing to work as hard as she expects.
Mrs. Curren is a fabulous teacher! She really prepares you for the AP, and she actually makes art history an interesting subject:)
Ms. Curren is Hilarious. Try your best, work hard, talk occasionally, get to know her personally and you will enjoy her class and get on her good side.
I don't like her class at all. The teacher has a total attitude and is not good with kids. She need to have patience and stop being so RUDE!!!!
yes,art isnt easy.but ms. curren gives an effort grade and all she really wants you to do is try your best.english or math isnt graded only on effort,why should this be different?
she has to understand that many of her art/history(freshman) didn't want to be put in her class but they were forced to.We are not all artists & we should be graded on effort only.
her ap art history class is one of the hardest in the school, but she is great at teaching you the maaterial. she hates kids who dont try. Get on her good side and youll love her
Has no idea how time-consuming her assignments are. The kids produce beautiful art, but at a price. Also very subjective, and she draws on the kids' work to i
she is cool but can also be hard becuz when it comes to art i think she is a perfectionist.....lol...but she is still cool...
study the chapter so you can understand the lectures. She's very picky about artwork so pay attention to her advice.
ms. curren is extremely easy, test wise, as long as you study you will ace the test, guaranteed! she does grade on ability and not effort, she likes it or not
funny when she picks on someone other than you,Grades really hard, but you will do the best art you have ever done, lots of drafts, she cares about students.
She grades on ability not effort, hates her classes and does not prepare you well and then tests you. She got me a 1 out of 5 on the AP, thanks for zilch.
She is by far the best teacher at Pali and my favorite and geniunely cares about her students if you believe it or not.
she is cool if you just see her around school, but in her class she is a nightmare! make sure you stay on her good side!
not too mean if u have her for AP or know her personally - but if not shes rude and spiteful, knows plenty but poor at conveying material, disorganized
Ms. Curren is kinda crabby inside of class, but if you see her in the halls she is soo nice! She is a pretty unfair grader- but she's challenging!
Knows her material, can be helpful, just is a little on the uncool side
A great person if you grow up and quit dragging your pants around. Wonderful teacher who genuinely cares about you.
hard teacher, but after leaving pali, she is one of the funniest people there...you just have to look at all the funny things about her, its hilarious
She thinks that your a great artist and that you will get everything PERFECT!
If your not a profesional ur going to fail her class
Take a fail if you are not good at art. Has an odd sense of humor and don't get on her bad side. You will be fine otherwise. "Parable of the Blind"
hated her- she grades on how much she likes the art work, not whether you tried or not- it's pretty much her opinion, and it's usually bad- she's a jerk
