Comment:
Does not give good feedback, very lazy when it comes to giving feedback during the process of a project and rarely ever gives useful feedback on improving. Communication was ok, she can sometimes take up to days to reply to an email and sometimes just leave a reply that she doesn't understand multiple times.

I learn a lot in this class and I understand why she picks on little things in project because she wants you to learn! MAKE SURE you watch all her video in the announcements and follow her requirements in projects, once you do you will be fine! Don't rush your projects, she knows if you didn't tried hard. Just make your best effort and u be fine!

Lots of work that takes lots of time but its organized fairly well. Had some videos to help us but other than that we were on our own besides emailing her any questions which she responds to pretty fast. Make sure you look at everything she provides though as she will sneak helpful tips and extra credit.

This class was a good bit of work but I wouldn't say it was hard. Just time-consuming. Although she didn't really teach the class much she responded to emails quickly and had office hours if you needed help.

Comment:
Professor Flynn is by far the worst professor and person at SCAD. She was extremely rude when responding to emails. She didnt teach the class what so ever. She is a tough grader even. I have only had experience in one drawing class so if you arent a strong drawer you will fail the class.

Joy was a fun and pleasant professor. The course is difficult, but she was always available to assist with any issues. I feel she graded us fairly based on our abilities and effort. Be sure to incorporate her critiques to show an effort and you should do well.

The art professor I'm most fondest of. Took her classes in 1996 and 1997. Lessons were well structure. She made herself available for extra class time even some Saturdays. Please note the classes I took were for those who already mastered the basics. Her lessons were gear toward learning materials techniques and expanding creativity.

Flynn is the best!!! Her Drawing 3 class was one of the most enjoyable classes Ive taken at SCAD. Her grading criteria is clear and she gives good feedback. If you put effort into your projects youll get a good grade, simple as that. 10/10 would take her class again.

This was one of the hardest classes I've ever had to take. The directions to the projects were so complicated and vague. She grades really hard and nitpicks everything. If you didn't do the directions completely correct for a project she'll just fail you. When talking to her over email she seemed like a nice person but an awful teacher.

Professor Flynn is super understanding and a really great person, but you will drown in homework. The drawings take FOREVER and they're pretty dreadful in my opinion, although, I don't think she creates the coursework. All I have to say is, I never want to work with charcoal or pastels again.

Great teacher, I feel I learned a lot from her. She is very nice as well! There is a lot of homework for this class. You will always have at least 3+ hours of homework (not including projects) every weekend. Some of the homework isn't so great but some of it really helps develop your drawing skills and learn a lot about your own style!

Tons of homework, but a lovely person! Really long and thorough critiques, she really helps you throughout the whole process. However be prepared to rush to finish all the assignments because of time restraints. Overall, a great learning experience and very supportive environment.

Way too much homework, enough to be worth a full semester of credits, no joke. Way way way too much course load. Do not take drawing 2 with her

Prof. Flynn is a lovely person and a good professor but she assigns a TON of work. If you aren't willing to put in a lot time and effort, I would definitely not recommend this class.

She was not very clear about her grading. She assigned so much work you felt as if you were only taking her class alone. This class was stressful and hectic. And we had to do reading assignments for a drawing class! I learned nothing from the reading! I had to switch back to film as a major from animation because of her class! Do not take her class

I honestly hated her class, shes probably the worst drawing teacher Ive had so far. She just wont shut up! you barely draw. She lectues you on a bucnh of useless things and makes you go through an entire process just to get one unfinished looking still life done. Be prepared to draw the same still life over and over again.

Her feedback and super helpful and does a nice job of stating the pro and cons of your piece. Gives a decent amount of studio time in class but still a good amount of lecturing too. Tends to pick favorites and gives a lot of homework. Also you have to check your emails and blackboard to be clear of the assignments and homework

Professor Flynn just doesn't shut up, on her working studio class she will lecture the first hour and a half, leaving you little to no time to work, she also behaves as her class is the only one you have, giving you insane amount of work for the next day, be prepared to skip other classes to finish it, we had 4 things due for the same class.

Comment:
I transferred to SCAD last quarter and I was nervous about taking a drawing class when my major wasn't drawing specific. But, Prof Flynn was so encouraging and dedicated to helping to me and all the other students in my class that it made me excited to go to my drawing class. I would take her again if I had the opportunity.
