Artist Essentials: Drawing from Reality


Scott gives great critiques and went over more technical perspective issues case-by-case in the assignments and Q&As.


Very knowledgeable about the content taught within the class. Great at clearly conveying ideas and concepts to the students.


Scott is a great teacher, he shows that he really cares about his students. It’s been an honor to get weekly reviews from such a talented person.


He goes above and beyond for the convenience of his students, and he truly cares about their development during the term.


Really nice guy. His critique videos were always double the length of the videos in my other CGMA classes because he goes for quite a while on certain aspects of my assignment and the perspective, which is what I wanted to hear. It was awesome getting feedback from him!
