He thinks he's funny but he isn't. You get horrible marks unless you do your projects EXACTLY how he wanted it to be. He marks according to how feels and hates on a lot of students. He also plays favourites. His favourites get riduculously higher marks than everyone else does in the class. Extremely unfair. The only thing I learned was Photoshop- oh wait. I had to learn most of that myself too.

I really disliked Mr Horton. He constantly talked in a patronizing tone and loved to embarrass students in front of the class. He had a strange taste in art and marked assignments according to what he liked, was very unfair on marking. I'm still not really sure why my mark dropped 15% in second term. The PhotoShop portion of the class used a cheap, outdated software, the assignments were boring and it was impossible to get a high mark. Mr Horton picked on many students and was very unfair.

He's awful. He thinks he funny and he's not. He'll be the first to tell you that what you're doing is all wrong but will then have to look up a youtube tutorial on how to do it. Doesn't know anything about media arts. Any projects need to be done exactly how HE would do them or you'll get an awful mark. My only suggestion would be to constantly pester him to check over your work and he'll basically do it for you and you'll get a great mark.

I really dislike him. He looks at some people's artwork and makes fun of them at how they are doing them. He is also not funny but think he is.

One of the most miserable classes in my entire time during high school. This teacher went out of his way to make my entire time in his class absolutely unbearable. Not only does he constantly look miserable but goes out of his way to make the other students feel less capable. I would suggest drama instead or go to walkerville for art. Horton ruined what was supposed to be a fun learning experience and made it pure agony.

If you are dedicated to your art and really want to learn, this teacher will help you soar. He might be strict but once he sees you're really passionate about the subject, you'll do wonderfully in his class. :)

He's a good guy but it's true you won't get a good mark if he doesn't like you. However, the only way he won't like you is if you talk during class and don't try, so it's kind of fair in some odd way
