I thought it was going to be a class more for professionals trying to advance their career but instead it was full of weekend warriors.
Hi, the course was really interesting for me and the Instructor was really skilled . However it could dedicated more to consolidate the progression of the program. Also I would like to receive a Certificate of Attendence. Thank you
If you want more hands on I would look for somewhere else to go get dirty. Our teacher didn't seem very forthcoming with telling us we could use the shop on weekends. We only got talking about our project in around week 5 which was almost a little late considering we were halfway through the course. Somehow I don't think the teacher was really interested in students from outside of Pratt attending a class, obviously not his choice. I did learn some great things about welding but Im sure I could find most of it in a text book. The class didn't have any structure and we seemed to always be waiting around for our teacher to get on with whatever he decided at the time.
There was not enough hands on time with the different welding methods. There was almost no hands on until the final project in the final 3 weeks. Very difficult to try to become familiar with tools when there is only lecture and no hands on. This class should incorporate both hands on and lecture.
The class was very educational as to the different components of collage - shared in an informal, non judge mental style that allowed all attendees to work in their own style..the class was small and allowed for individual feedback from the teacher...the length Allowed for a good amount of hands on practice.
The teacher was excellent and I would highly recommend him. He was very knowledgeable and taught the class well as a whole and worked with us individually. He had a unique way of teaching each principle leafing up to the afternoon of our makING a collage. I learned so much!
Overall, it was informational and interesting. Really opened my mind up about UX/UI. But the overall course was too short and wish there were more sessions. A little expensive for 2 classes.
Excellent class and wonderful teacher! I highly recommend this class and can't wait to take another class with Natalie again soon!
Anthony Bloch was a patient and very available professor who knows his stuff
Prof. Mark Lim is an amazing teacher. He will take you step by step through the process of developing powerful and fresh sketches and he is always open for new projects and input. I would take this course again without hesitation!
