What Students Say

"Although I have participated in the arts my whole life, I never fully understood what the 'creative process' was until my class with Tim. His teaching style gives space for students to truly experiment; to develop and play with ideas until they become something more sophisticated and beautiful. His expectations and feedback encouraged me to produce my best art, and make me feel a new respect and seriousness about my work. Now I can consider myself an artist and a maker."
-Krista Nordgren, Creative Writing Major and Dance Minor
