All Ratings and Reviews for Barbara Drucker
I had her for a Colloquia class. She was so interested and supportive. She has a nice habit of letting students crit each other and offering guiding comments on top. I would definitely take another class from her.
I had Drucker for both Beginning Drawing and Painting. Though you DO need to come into her classes having experience (because technically, you have to self-teach), she is absolutely a wonderful teacher who sees the best in everyone. The studio environment is so welcoming and she tries to make everyone feel like their art is appreciated, even if it's way out there! She is very flexible and understanding and wants the best for her students. Just come prepared to figure things out on your own and you'll love her!
I was amazed at how much time and energy professor Drucker put into her fiat lux class, which I thought was absoloutly fabulous. I probably learned more in five, one hour sessions with her than I did in a whole year of high school art classes. Anyone given the opportunity to take classes with this woman, SHOULD!
I took both beginning drawing & painting w/ Drucker. She is so welcoming to everyone and really creates a great atmosphere. Please note that you need to come into her class with your technical skills down, because it relatively is self-taught! She'll let you go in whatever direction you want to go, but don't plan on learning any technical aspects. Perhaps better for the art student who already has had extensive experience in drawing and painting, or an ambitious newcomer!
I took Prof. Drucker's fiat lux seminar, so this review really only applies to non-majors taking this class.
This seminar was an excellent way to learn more about art and art-making. Prof. Drucker had us practice beginning drawing techniques, showed us slides and books, and explained some theories of visual analysis.
The assignments were mostly fun and really required us to start thinking about art and finding our own methods of expression. Through this one-unit seminar, I feel like I have a greater appreciation for artists in general and for myself...not that I'm good or anything, but that I have another outlet for creativity, which previously didn't seem available to me.
She did a great job teaching us lowly non-art-majors, and was very friendly.
The only problem with this class is the people that just take it because they think it's an easy way to fulfill a requirement and therefore don't care, and the people who enroll and use the class time as their own personal time to show themselves off to the art department's chair so that they can transfer to the art school and the art major (which won't happen btw).
In general, great seminar.
