What Chris’ Students are Saying

Chris answers all of our questions very patiently, in the Q&A and also during the week. Gives detailed and helpful feedback on our critiques. The Q&As are very fun and informative. He prepares a lot of subjects to discuss and asks which are the ones we would like to talk about the most so the classes are always the most helpful for us.

I think Chris is not only a good mentor but also a very good person. To me he was best when giving critiques, he was very supportive and positive, and tried his best to give the most info on what we were creating. He understood what we were going through and that was in itself very reassuring.
