He is a what I would call the "old school teacher" - back when a teacher was also your mentor and friend. Glen always stayed after class and talk to you and look at your work. He was not concerned with you learning his specific technique - but rather you learning the fundamentals and applying them. He always brought in various art books every week and encouraged us to learn and study from other artists.

Glen's job was to incessantly challenge you. I would always be learning a new way of thinking and seeing every week: losing edges, idealization, reilly rhythms, construction, shapes, values, composition. Just when I thought I was getting the hang of the lesson last week - Glen would give us another mountain to tackle.
Over the course of 10 weeks I learned many new tools and techniques. Now, it's time for me to actually put those tools to use, learn and create great work! Take his class if you have the chance - I highly recommend it.
