This man changed my life in ways that would seem to made up to mention. Truly I can't say enough good about him. Thank you for opening up an entire world of art to me. I know make my living as a visual artist, own my own business and employ two other artist, because one man took the time to teach me the difference between a good life and a rich one.
great guy. his class might be hard but he prepares you for college and life beyond
Can you say "overinflated ego" kids? Sykes would be a good teacher if he spent less time yapping about how much better he is at at what he does than his colleagues and spent more time helping you with your artwork. Don't get me wrong, he knows his stuff. He just doesn't know how to teach anyone who isn't a gifted artist/architect
When I lost my cell phone he helped me find it. And then the next day, he told all the janitors and they looked for it for me. And they found it. He also has great insight and life advice.he's so nice
mr sykes is too busy running his politics to realize that half of the class could care less. he is his own biggest fan. his tactics are getting old--just ask around.
Awesome teacher and the political views are something that I have come to see in life so I can't say he told us anything but the TRUTH. Best teacher! Ones who can't see should open their eyes!
He is no help, i learned nothing except that Obama is the next "messiah"
He'd be a great art teacher if he would stop throwing all his political views at you every day.
Mr. Sykes is the greatest. I lost my interest in art a few years ago, but he brought me back to it. He has a great sense of humor, and is amazingly generous with his time for us.
You cannot make art in a class, on demand. There is no laxative for expression. He turns the AC up so high that we are making ice sculptures next week. Can't wait...
uses cursing &cheap michael-moore-like theatrics to win over class...egotistical waste of space...poor art teacher that unfortunatly will prob never leave or be asked to
Still one of the best guys I have ever met! One of 2 teachers that have every had an influence on me & now, I am a teacher...LOVE YA (AMD)
Nice guy, but his class is a showcase for mediocrity. People that can't otherwise succeed in school love the class for the recognition that they get, but its fake.
One of the best teachers I had at Prep, he can be grumpy, but really loves and cares about what hes doing and his students. Inspires me to be a great parent someday
i love sykes...had him a long time ago...was my inspiration to teach & a great friend....i still can't paint but i can listen to my kids like no other...thanks!
funny and smart guy but sometimes pats himself on the back while saying he doesnt pat himself on the back
temperamental, but will change your thinking if you let him,in a good, laxative sort of way
tempermental at times....but awesome overall! Great clasS!
sometimes he doesnt kno when to shut his mouth and let things go!
