Comment:
What a bad professor! He would talk and talk with no real aim and he would try and push his own pet theories about auras and colors rather than teaching us anything useful. He was very close-minded and wouldn't consider any ideas that didn't come from him. This is one of those classes that I got through because I had to, but I didn't learn much.

He talks and talks and talks and there is no point. I can't even follow his endless string of **** because it wanders around so much.

Comment:
I went into the class with an open mind, but soon hated it because he is a horrible lecturer. Will repeat things day after day, and never stops talking even when we are working. Grades harder than neccesary, too subjectively, and seems to aim projects towards painters/illustrators. The text is actually very interesting, but he ruins it when hetalks

Comment:
I think I would have enjoyed this class much more had it been in the afternoon. Despite trying to make things interesting, I felt that he rambled on a lot more about things that weren't included in the text. THE TEXT IS POINTLESS. There were times when he came to class unprepared, but it may have been that he tried to give out too many handouts.

Comment:
This guy shouldn't be allowed to teach. 8 am- 2 hours of him studdering and repeating himself 14 times before he gets to his point which at that point he's rambled so much you forgot what it was about to start with. don't take this class if your not an art

Comment:
personally, he's a great guy, but avoid this class if you can. The fact that classes like this which focus on archaic art and archaic ideas exist detracts from the practical strength of NMU's art program. Ideas in art are good, but we need new ideas... impressionism has been over for a long time.

Comment:
Cappuccio is boring and none of his students can follow what he says. He fits in the category of those who "TRY to teach." He is a space cadet and loses the attention of everyone when he says his first words. I would not recommend taking a class with him, but if you do... prepare to bring your labto

Be prepared for his class to be a little scattered and just go with the flow, keep an open mind, its an art class. He has a great interest in what he is doing which was difficult to follow at times but looking back on it shows more clarity.

I will admit in the beggining I dreaded going to class. Lots of drawing assignments. After a while however, I grew to not mind it as much. Very nice guy. You do have to be able to take a laugh once in a while; he is a bit scatterbrained. Take it. It won't hurt I promise....

I had him for ad175, ad219 and ad375... learned a lot, very intelligent man, loves what he is doing… if you like to skip class don’t take him for a class because attendance is part of your grade and you will loose some of his respect

He was very outside the box but the class was easy. I did not take a art class sice middle school and still managed a B+. If you are able to laugh take him as a teacher. I though it was fun.

Comment:
Captain Capuccio is a marginal artist and a indecipherable professor that just wanted to be more- tell him you think he's a genius it is the only part of his grading scale I understand. He begged for reassurance during every painful class.
