Mr erickaon is really cool. He can be a grouch and really sarcastic, but he's so funny. He gives you forever to turn in your assignments and barely ever gives outt As, but you can't get lower than a C

He's ok. He is a little grumpy because he's ready to retire. He did help when you asked him and he was lenient sometimes.

He is very sarcastic, but a lovable old guy. He knows his stuff for sure. He teaches with videos, but when he actually does art on the board in chalk and when he helps you out with your paintings, you

He can really put you down sometimes but if you just pay attention and just dont get on his bad side an A isnt hard to get at all! Just do good on the sketchbooks.

He clearly hates teaching..or at least the students. Yet he is very talented at art. Seems like a good person, but usually very cranky. Yet I have enjoyed his class and learned a lot.

He teaches boring art that is too similar to drafting. He gives too many people bad grades and isn't a lenient grader. If you do your best in his class, you may end up with just a C.

He's hilarious! He picks on people who deserve it, and lets those he likes do whatever they want. Too bad we never really painted...

I'll say the best part about this class wasn't just sleeping, but also making fun of him for being a genuine COWBOY!! Yes, haven't you seen those pictures?
