Art app with cappell is one of those classes, where you think to yourself, why am I here? I honestly learned nothing. But one of the plus sides is that you basically do nothing in class, so you can just chat the whole period away or do homework from another class. Theres basically no homework. The only negative to this class is the tests and finals, in which you will know nothing and fail. She wasn't fair with her grades, considering she taught nothing but expected us to know more.
Had her for acrylic art. She was funny sometimes. Most of the time she just let you do your own thing. It was a pleasant experience. The few times she did teach it was slightly confusing.
Definitely not your best art teacher in Stuyvesant, but hey she's retired now (I think).
I think doctors have better handwriting than her, but just pay attention and you'll be (sorta) fine.

I am a current freshman, and I have to say she isnt that bad of a teacher. She does know what she is talking most of the time, and does reference the textbook. However, she is very, and I mean very boring. Almost the whole class are sleeping or talking to friends because the lesson does not engage well. The exams are hard, As one who actually studied a lot, i received a 78, which was the third highest in the class.The majority got 40-50. Really boring class, I would want to switch out of there
Super easy teacher if you just listen to stuff she says and take notes. Her board notes are sloppy but she does know what she iis talking about. She also curves so it's all good if you end up not doing so well on the final.
Complete dimwit who should've retired 20 years ago. Doesn't teach, have fun with your 20 on the final. Grading is totally ridiculous, she just thinks of a # and gives it to you. A five year old with crayons is a better art teacher than she is. I have no idea why she still has a job.
Over all an awful teacher. Transfer to Karp. She renders one entirely unprepared for the final. Lowered my GPA 4 points.
Had her for art and computer graphics. Lost my final project and called me 2nd to last day of school expecting me to redo it even though it was done by hand. Dropped me 10 points on report card becaus
Her notes are very sloppy and very hard to read. Many students ignore them too, and she doesn't seem to notice. Then when the midterm comes...
rude, not a great teacher. i barely learn anything. people sleep in her class. her movies are alright.
Completely incompetent. You will not learn anything about art, you will fail the final. You will somehow magically pass art. If you actually want to learn, transfer out asap.
Not very considerate of her students. Her voice is like sleeping tonic.
Horrid teacher!! She picks favorites who she keeps giving "checks" and calls on when teaching while ignoring everyone else- thats unless she is giving somebody else a "zero" for doing something minor
Picks favorites. Unfair grading. I like art, but I hate her class.
Very easy class to ace. If you need a teacher to baby sit you then she isn't the right teacher for you. Her acrylics class was very chill and great. :)
nice but its funny how imcompetent she is. still, nice sweet lady :) her class isn't hard but don't hope to learn too much. i love watching her look confused about everything
Although not the greatest of teachers, a kind person nonetheless.
She is so completely clueless. In freshmen year she honestly would not notice if half the class left. She is unclear,picks favorites, and is very unhelpful when you dont understand something
Her art appreciation class combines studio work with useful lectures--a demanding but rewarding teacher, committed to art and her students.
Kind, enthusiastic, helpful yet doesn't know much about art history. Watercolor was better. Show interest, make an effort + you can do well easily, enjoy the classes a lot, and get a lot of individual attention (if you want).
She's a pretty cool teacher as long as you pay attention and take notes. you don't have to be an artist--just try hard. doesn't use textbook unless you're really bad. answer questions and she loves you. you learn a lot
She's awesome outside of Art Appreciation. She's an art teacher, not art history.
Very bias. doesnt teach- shows videos and makes us read from textbooks during classtime, and her directions are often very vague will find every excuse to lower your grade if she doesnt like you my friend is a perfect example
Just listen to what she wants for the art. I'm aweful but got a 10 by using color diffusion which she said she liked. Tests will be fine if you take notes from lectures. Stay awake
Easy to get good grades, but I learned damn near nothing and hte midterm is impossible (doesn't seem to count for much, though). Good thing art requirement is one semester.
Take notes and do your current events. You don't need to be an absolute artist to pass the class but study hard for the tests. She gives a pretty decent review before the final.
Cappell's class is incredibly boring, she teaches from textbooks, but stay with her, because nobody else for art appreciation is any better.
artwork must be perfect in order to get 10s.. which is just ridiculous, her arthist lessons are just lectures, she's oblivious to whether we actually understand
shes easy dun do any current events nd dun try nd youll still get good grades
have you realized how her ratings were good at first? then it got worst. hmm....it's interesting. anyways...stay on her good side. that's all i can say.
she cut almost half of her classes. also, she considers it teaching to have us take notes from the boring book. However, i found the tests and projects easy-ish
Cappell can't teach. She is irritating and seems like she has no idea what she's doing.
she gives materials on the test that we never learned, i wonder if she even realizes it?
she makes me wonder how long it'll takew her to realize that she's putting us all to sleep! She's practically singing us a lullaby!!!
Her Computer Graphics Design class was so easy. We had a student teacher, and she was much more helpful. Just do something that satisfies what she wants.
unclear assignments with random grades and not suggestions for improvement
