David is really sweet... until it comes to critique. He can be rather harsh at critiques. If you try really hard in his courses, you will most likely get a B+, particularly in Drawing. I have had him for Drawing 1 and Color Concepts and although he is helpful, he is kind of a perfectionist. He …more likes things to be finished. He is a great guy though! less

Have had him for 3 classes so far. He is one of the best drawing teachers I have had thus far. You really must put forth effort in his classes... he knows when you do/don't.

Hes a great teacher and very talented but he even starts the class by saying no one in here is getting an A, I never give them out. Its very discouraging.

The hardest class I have taken so far at college. He is a perfectionist so much so that he is discouraging. I spent a lot of time stressing out about making drawings perfect, rather than experimentation, which is really what a 100-level course should be.

He is a good professor and seems to really care about his students. However, he is a perfectionist. In a beginning drawing class I don't think he should be as hard on grading as he is. Take another professor if you want to keep your high GPA.

He has a certain way of doing things and teaches you not the technique of doing something + HIS technique of doing something and that was annoying + if you didnt follow it, you got a bad grade. Hard, strict, stressful, and the assignments where not fun. The only nice was his face, he is pretty …more cute. Take Vacne Farrow if you can best man ever! less

He is impossible. I tried so hard in his drawing class to no avail. Unless you're Da Vinci expect a B+ or lower.

He is a genuinely kind person but his class is very difficult. He does offer good feedback and grades fairly. However, the self portrait assignments became increasingly more tiring to complete. I was utterly burnt out by the end of the semester. Mix it up!

He's not clear in his assignments and his critique is extremely subjective and biased to his own personal aesthetic. He seems like a nice guy but he's so snarky and kind of rude if he doesn't like something.
