Supportive. Creative. Happy. Fun. Easy going. Respected. Passionate about art and teaching. It doesn't matter if you think you're "bad" at art, or if your project is "bad"...as long as you show him you're putting real effort into your work, and that you're trying your best to apply what you learn in class to your homework, Fort will give you a good grade. He WON'T fault you for being bad at art; He WILL fault you for not trying. His criticisms are never personal, so don't get angry or upset.

Mr. Fortmiller was my art teacher a million years ago. I still remember him as an amazing and nurturing person who really cares about his students as whole people. He defines expectations clearly with rubrics and recognizes "most improved" students (vs just caring about raw talent). If you really listen at critiques and follow through, your drawing will improve greatly. I did not end up in fine arts, but I am in an allied field; and I credit Mr Fortmiller's support in propelling me forward!

He's a great teacher and a great guy, but he takes art too seriously. Don't expect an easy A.
