Mr. Low was my favourite teacher in high school during the 1990s when I attended. He made a bad high school experience better, and I have since gone on to pursue a successful career in the visual arts. Thanks Gary.

Mr. Low stands out in my education as one of those teachers who I wish I'd paid more attention to. He was one of the only teachers willing to drill the fundamentals into our heads, and always had an interesting story. One time he reamed me out for throwing planks of wood on the school roof - which I deserved. I think I owe my success in the arts field somewhat to the lessons I learned in his class.

Mr. Low is the single greatest teacher I've ever had. We really made a connection and he's a really swell guy and an amazing artist and teacher! I hope that other people feel the same way because I feel extremely strongly about this. Best teacher!

One of the greatest art teachers at our school! He's extremely talented and is loaded with fun stories to tell the class about his experiences. The projects you do with him are fun and interesting. He usually talks a lot about different artists and photographers at the beginning of class, but you can tell how passionate he is about art.

Mr Low = MY LIFE. No joke. The most fun I've ever had in this school has been in his class. He won't force you to learn, but if you ask him anything about art he's always able to answer from some sort of been there, done that perspective. Very very cool.

Gary Low is the best teacher I have ever had. He appreciates the students, tells the best stories, is so insightful and understanding. Sure he doesn't like little kids like me, but it's hilarious to hear what he'd want to do with them. He will always be remembered.

I graduated from V.A.Majors in 06, and he is probably the best teacher i have had in my entire tdsb school career. Whether you get along with him or not, he always has something insiteful& interesting to say. He is on a university prof level. I am sorry that i didnt value my time in his class more. I never liked conceptual art, but he gave me the understanding to appreciate, understand, create, and interpret it. He is funny, spirited, interesting, and knows his stuff.He is very FAIR! viva "you beast"!
