portfolio is a great, but I would prefer more freedom (in terms of project choices and mediums),
I also wish he could be more empathetic.

(Portfolio)Ok, easily my least favorite teacher ever. Very judgemental and self obsessed. Does not understand that good art takes time and rushes students. Did not allow a lot of freedom in projects. He is the reason I'm not taking AP studio, which is a bummer.

Yes, Mr. Q can be pretty strict, but if you try and actually do your work, his classes are really good at preparing you for jobs and stuff in computers/gaming. I know a couple students who just won first place in a competition for designing a product on the 3D printer in his class. For getting students ready and having tons of software to try his class is legit!

First of all, Quigley is a very chill guy in general. If you dont do hw, turn in your assignments on time and try, then he will like you. Dosent play favorites but he will like you better if you simply turn in better quality work. Dosent judge much, and kinda tries too much at being funny. His lectures are really boring, really reallly borring, but they do help a lot if you pay attention. His classes are overall easy and i still got an 95 in his class with a 45% on the final

I have say that although his class is sort of easy, but you don't learn a lot in his class. He is pretty bias as you will see. He makes fun of people's work. Oh one more thing, he doesn't like asians.

Awsome teacher very helpful. Some say he's a pain but really he's a nice guy and you just gotta pay attention and follow his rules thats all he asks. He pretty great, loves to joke around and heck a gamer himself haha. When do you ever hear a teacher playing a PC game? Other than solitare that is.
