Comment:
This is the worse professor Ive ever had. He gives heavy projects but absolutely NO RUBRIC at all, yet he makes up things day by day making it hard to catchup if you miss class and if youre a student with chronic illness & accommodations he does not care whatsoever. He never remembers what he says & hes very passive aggressive with his students.

He can't take responsibility for his mistake, and insists on you being the one taking all responsibility even if he screws you over. Doesn't remember anything ever, even if you talked to him two minutes prior. Worse teacher, glad he's retiring.

Hes so unclear with his grading! He always comes up with ideas for projects last minute and doesnt know what he wants. He tells you one thing and expects another. I worked my ass off in this class and I got the worst grade Ive ever gotten at SFCC. Hes nice, but Impossible to please, & he probably wont like your art. You wont learn a thing.

Comment:
The workload is manageable with very little homework. He goes over the finals questions beforehand but it kinda comes out of nowhere because there are very few lectures in this class - read your project handouts. Tom can be unclear in his instructions, or change them as he gets into the project. I liked him overall, he isn't smiley but he's nice

Great art class! Fun. Engaging. Serious instructor with an underlying sense of humor. Tom is involved in many community events -- an excellent resource for networking.

i enjoyed toms class very much. he is intense, doesnt comb his hair, and looks borderline insane... however, he is passionate about his work and his students and if you simply show a genuine interest, you will do fine. and yes, hes kinda hot.

Comment:
Color and design,- dosen't answer questions with concern and guidance, would rather rake and cause embarassment. Prefers the male students, causes the females to seem to be stupid. Don't expect anything from him. Just go and don't ask any questions, sometimes his breath is over 2.0.

I loved this guy. I learned a lot from him and still reference what he taught me to to this day (8 years later). Don't get me wrong, he's unique, moody and hardcore. But what artist isn't? But if you tried, showed an interest and an effort you will go far with him.

Hes Hard core art orinted. ALWAYS WEARS BLACK. He takes pride in what he knows. Don't challenge him unless you got everything you need to back you up right there. Great guy, but truly an Artist.

Worse Class ever! He graded everyone on the last day based on what you already knew! Attendance, effort, being ontime, paying attention and being prepared to learn does not effect your grade, whatsoever!! If you have natural abilty nothing else matters.

Ask Tom about his days as a cool art kid in New York sometime. But don't ask why he's wasting away in a backwater community college. He deserves FAR better.
