Comment:
Probably the best professor to take if you have no drawing experience/are new to color theory. Projects are very straightforward and you get abt 2 weeks for each, only other work is creating scales and color wheels. You get feedback via Padlet each class, other than that we don't do much in class. Easy grader-just work hard and you'll pass.

If you don't show up to class, he will give you some attitude. Other than that, he is amazing. He clearly explains what he wants on projects and makes sure you have what you need to do it. He understands that not everyone can draw well and won't grade you hard on talent. If you get on his bad side, he will find a way to lower your grade.

He's the most accommodating professor towards people with little art background I've ever seen, so if that describes you take him! Class had a balanced learning curve and clear structure. He gives many opportunities to check/help with your projects during your process. He's a relatively easy grader. I took 4 yrs of HS art and ended Q1 with a 99.3!!

First off, I didn't buy the textbook (so not necessary) and I'm a horrible painter. He accommodates students who aren't great at fine arts. He's very passionate and super nice. Quizzes are SO easy! He let us pick our mediums for the second two projects so if you're not a painter don't stress! Homework is kinda time-consuming! Don't procrastinate!

His classes were the most boring 5 hours a week I have ever experience , he constantly changes his mind about what he expects from projects and turns a class that has a lot of potential into a tedious process that doesnt take you anywhere.

TAKE HIM!! He has to be my favorite professor here at scad. We get to do our projects in class so he is able to give you ongoing advice and its so helpful! After every critique, we get to give him feedback on his teaching style. He also lets students do freelance work with him to make extra money on the side. One girl now has her art published. A+!

Professor Johnson is such a nice and chill professor. His classes are really hands-on and you really get to improve your drawing skills. He gives great feedback, but you have to ask. His instructions are really easy to understand as well. No textbook needed. Perfect balance of classwork and homework.

He tries to make sure that everyone is on the same page and understands the criteria for each project. He gives lots of homework, but it's all pretty easy stuff. As far as a color theory teacher, I would definitely recommend him to anyone. It might take him about half the quarter to warm up, but when he does, he is a funny and nice guy.

I really like this class. Although I only got B. I learned the drawing skills a lot and he cares students a lot. He gave you a good feedback and told you he love it. But still give B. He really focus on your skills. I dont have any skills before, so thats make sense.

Prof Johnson is a really great guy and I made an A in his class. If he sees you work hard you will probably make a good grade. He doesn't give great feedback though. All he does is compliment. He would tell me my work looked amazind and he loved it and then I would receive a low B.

I would take him for every class if I could. He is very nice and understanding. He gives great feedback and grades based on your own ability, not against others. He also has a decent workload - only 20 entries un a sketchbook for the midterms and finals. The projects aren't really as interesting as the projects from other professors though.

Professor Johnson was the best! Although it took him most of the quarter to open up, once he did he was hilarious. Tough grader, but as long as you work hard and show an application of what he tells you you'll do great. Make sure to attend class and do the homework. Almost all of the class is still lifes done in the classroom.

He is a good teacher, definitely teaches you what you need to know, However he isn't very engaging. The professor is very helpful and puts time aside for his students. Further more he is a fair grader and is pretty laid back when it comes to working in class, you can listen to music. Unlike some he doesn't stop class to talk, he lets you work.

Professor Johnson is amazing. I took him for basically my first drawing ever so I went into his class with ZERO knowledge about drawing and ZERO confidence. He always gave positive feedback including constructive criticism. I loved his class. I would take him for every class if I could. I left his class very confident in my ability to draw!

Johnson is such a great guy! He's so nice, and he's a great teacher! I wish he taught classes other than foundations, because I would love to take him again. He gives plenty of time for projects, and lots of feedback. Also, his projects are really cool-I loved them-and he lets you resubmit. Definitely take him!

I LOVE Pernell Johnson. Everyone hates color theory and this was my FAVORITE class of the quarter. I would take him again in a heart beat. He is extremely helpful and clear. You have the freedom to pick your medium and subject for most of the projects. You have A LOT of studio time and time in general for projects. He grades VERY fairly. TAKE HIM!!

Professor Johnson is the man! What a genuinely nice guy. He gives great feedback, but be willing to put in the work to succeed. He is an illustrator, so talk to him outside of class if you are interested, he is always willing to share his experience, work, and helpful tips. Overall highly recommend.

I loved this Professor. I took him for design 100 and 101 and if I could I would take anything else from him that he taught. He is clear with what he wants but also very flexible towards your creativity. Over all very helpful and inspiring
