28. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He takes the time to talk to students and shows them how to do sommething if the student doesn't understand. Encourges students to ask questions if any and he has a great teaching personality that helps students learn easier.
Always going around checking on student progress and asking if help or advice is needed. Gives advice on anything that could use improvement.
Jonathan always made sure to individually ask us if they had any questions and would give advice on how to improve our work. He always made sure to encourage us to do our best.
He gave equal and helpful attention to all the students.
thanks for teaching us watercolors. you are an amazing artist.
The instructor shows his concern by always walking around the class and helping everyone. He gives great advice and really knows the subject material so this helps with encouraging and allowing the class to feel comfortable and improve on the material.
He always makes suggestions on how to do stuff, but you're not forced to take them.
The instructor would take time everyday to go to each student and help everyone, a couple times a day.
29. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Hids teaching method of not just learning inside the class, but going outside and learning from the environment we live.
There is very little pressure to produce work that is really nice. I felt that he looks at each artwork based on who has created it and on how much they know and only expected the students to try their best.
I liked the one on one time we had every class and how easily accessible he was if we had any questions.
Loved it all!
i really enjoyed the setup of the class, starting with still life and then moving to harder things like water and landscape. I enjoy how there were movies and examples and also field trips to paint outside.
I liked that we got to spend the majority of the time painting. The videos made me want to snore though, sheesh they were boring.
I liked how we got to work out of the classroom and paint landscape, oceans, clouds,..etc He also taught by example and was always looking out for the best interest of each individual.
30. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He's a great teacher and if he has a higher level watercolor class, i would be interested.
The only thing I wished he would have been more clear about was how to use the different types techniques. I would've liked to have had more demos or instructions.
The instructor is an amazing artist and is very credbile for all he has to say
He is very understanding concerning why you might be late or absent within reason.
I really like Johnathan Busse and I think he's an excellant artist as well as teacher.
31. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, i recommend this class because you'll learn a lot about painting and grab ideas for other medium of painting.
Yes, I enjoyed this class and felt that it has improved my skills in this particular area.
I would definitely recommend Johnathan for beginning watercolor students. I've learned all the basic techniques needed to complete a watercolor painting, how to use brushes, how to mix colors, etc. I've also improved my drawing skills. The class isn't at all intimidating and Johnathan does a good job of encouraging students.
I would recommend this instructor, he gives great advice and i believe he knows all the students have their own personal style and he really encourages that
I would, I feel like I learned a lot of great techniques in this class that I will continue to use. It was also very good because you were allowed to chat at times and even listen to music while you were painting.
Yes, very god instructor, very caring
