I had Ms. Krams for SP4, which would have been acrylic and oil, but- get this- she's allergic to oil paint! So that cut out about half the curriculum. I also think that the only reason she teaches kids is that she's not qualified enough to teach adults. Class can sometimes be unpleasant because she yells at us in this really raspy voice about the "day of reckoning," which really derails the whole class. She "krams" a lot of projects and a crazy final that she doesn't prepare you for at the end.

She is a very weird lady and I did not learn anything new in art. Actually I don't think she even knows art herself. When I was shading a box she told me to color in circles.....not the direction of the box shape.....She makes no sense and has very little patience with her students. Does she even know how to draw herself...?

She is a very weird lady. She often mumbles/talks to herself and is constantly "shushing" us. I have gotten used to her irrational/random outbursts of anger that she often displays. She is constantly leaving the room and if I had a penny for every time we did a collage, i'd be rich. Stange woman, dislike her class.

As an art student she made my hate myself and my art. Just seeing her ruins my entire day, not to mention when she pens her mouth.

Krams has rather uncreative project ideas, and tends to leave the room a lot. At least once a day she will yell at students (either in the class or in the hallways) to quiet down. I do not exaggerate when I say that she yells very loudly, and without much warning. Students are also able to get away with spending days in a row of class doing absolutely nothing. I am often bored in her class.

ms krams is a horrible teacher. she's late everyday, and she assigns so many projects, without giving us any time to complete them. i haven't learned anything from her, our student teacher was the one who taught us everything. she's also very testy about talking, and is contradicting w/ instructions

I had her for Art Intro and SP4 and I hardly ever saw her. If I didn't know who she was, I wouldn't have known she was our teacher.

Ms. Krams was not helpful at all. All she did was complain about how busy she was. I could've taught that class better.

I like Ms.Krams because she isn't critical. She never has anything bad to say about your artwork. But gets really peeved when the class gets loud
