Comment:
His teaching varies depending on how interested he is in the class. His true passion lies with Ceramics, and any other class he teaches seems to be a hassle to him. He gets offended if people don't show up to class, but he skips class on a regular basis. I get the vibe that he's still teaching here because he gets to use the facility.

Comment:
I wasn't nervous about this class until I learned that we would be focusing on the human form. McBeth was incredibly helpful whenever I had questions (though sometimes I did have to go look for him). For those who didn't like his teaching style, it is a bit unusual, but this is an upper level studio class and you shouldn't need your hand held.

Comment:
I have taken 3D design, beginning ceramics, two semesters of advanced ceramics (about to be three) and a special topics raku class with him. Made all A's. He's awesome, but he's not going to hold your hand. You're an adult and he's going to treat you like one. He grades a lot on effort. Ask ?s, be attentive, and give it your all, you'll do great.

This professor did everything BUT inspire me to create art. I was harshly disappointed in his lack of professionalism and studio ethics.

Super nice guy who loves what he does and loves when people show interest in what they do in his class! Each semester he gives me renewed faith in my own abilities and motivates me more and more! he is respectful and helpful if you show that you care. I will try to take him every semester possible. If i have a mentor at this school it's this man!!!

I do not understand the people who say he doesn't care. OBVIOUSLY they did not talk to him or ask him any questions. If you are a good art student who works hard and takes pride and effort in what you do, he will notice you. Otherwise if you are in there to get an easy grade and don't care....he will notice you don't give a hoot so neither will he.

No idea how he figures your grade. He never returned any graded items. We thought we would have A's, but he doesn't give alot of them and we have no idea what we did wrong. Nice guy, a little strange, but I liked him. He is always respectful of your work.

Do not take Mr. McBeth if you want to receive timely feedback, to actually use the textbook you spent good money to buy, to stay awake for lectures, to use three credit hours on a class which will actually help you accomplish something worthwhile. I came out of his class with a semester of frustration and a meaningless and far too easy A.

McBeth is easy going, and lots of fun. He isn't too task oriented, but expects things to get done. He's not like any teacher I've EVER had before. Take this man, not because his classes aren't difficult, but rather because if you choose not to, you'll be missing out on a great person, friend, and teacher.

Comment:
McBeth is a strange, lovable person. Going into this class, I assumed that my time was being wasted, because of his "different" teaching style. I was wrong. In taking him for drawing, I became a better drawer. Recommended. He is easy, and easy to get along with

Great guy, Easy to get along with, he is willing to take his time to show you what you need to do and is very patient with those who dont. The class is great to take, lets you unwind from the other classes, Be ready to get messy. All he expects you to do is to try, and hopes that you get better. Excellent Teacher.

I had McBeth for most of the art classes, but definitely ceramics is his passion. I think he has great ideas and is also a good listener.

He is lazy, I have taken him for several courses, and learned nothing from him. Even if I tried to learn, nothing. You can do nothing and get a good grade though.
