EMPATHETIC.. I was his student in the 80's..
He is the greatest teacher/mentor Ive ever known..
He will always take that extra time to talk with you on a teacher to student level.. but more of a person you can call your friend ..
Phil We love you .. Seems your still upholding your quality of standards in the classroom..
Keep helping those who need that extra .. just like I did .
God Bless the Galows.

Best teacher/coach you can ever imagine of! Great sense of humor and is always happy, the only time he's pissed off is on the basketball/tennis court, but that's natural. Great overall guy and a good teacher!

I remember Mr.Galow, the first he was very intimating, but once you get to know him he is very helpful, and is always striving for his students to become better artists. I also really enjoyed his sense of humor when it came to art. He does how ever not like lazy kids and will call you out on it. I highly suggest anyone who is taking art to take his class because he will not disappoint!

He's super chill and very helpful. He has a very different outlook on life which makes him really interesting. He never makes fun of kids to be mean, he's just trying to have fun.

He's a funny guy with an interesting look on the world and people. He does make fun of kids but I think he's just trying to relate and be funny. Only complaints I have are that he goes really fasts when he does demos so you better pay close attention and sometimes his directions are a little confusing.

Galow is by far the best art teacher. He does make fun or you and he is really critical on art but thats only to help you out. He is always willing to help and is really clear on waht he wants done.
