She graded you based on HER artistic interpretation and didn't take into consideration the typed explanation of your work you submit. I really didn't enjoy this class although we did not have class very often which was a plus. If you want a 6 be prepared to really work for it and be enthusiastic about art. Anything else, and you'll find yourself with a 4.

Ms. Veenema is one of the best art teachers I've ever had. The projects in her class are fun, but challenging. I learned a lot in her class, and if you have her as a teacher you are very lucky!

she's very spacey, doesn't laugh at anything. she may have tripped a lot of acid in her day. She's flexible though and overall a good video teacher.

She really knows her stuff, especially with video. She is always there to help, but she doesn't hover and correct everything, which allows more creative space.

Cool art teacher. She's there if you need her, but is also willing to be hands-off if you prefer that.
