I have no clue why people say he's a control freak and he's an awful teacher. Just to clarify, he is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He has a sense of humour and he's extremely artistic. He's quite laidback, believe it or not. I had a great semester with him as my art teacher and I hope I get him as my teacher again.

He is a complete control freak. He definitely has favorites and will give you unfair marks if you ever contradict him. He doesn't allow any room for creativity or artistic freedom (other than his own of course). Mr. McLean would make a great dictator if given the opportunity. The only way to secure a mark in the mid 90's is if you never miss a single class and only do exactly what he says. He is the worst art teacher I have ever had. I work hard for my marks and feel unjustifiably ripped off.

People say he used to be a really good teacher but now hes a total control freak. Hes not easygoing about anything especially not cell phones. The only way he will like you is if you do everything exactly how/ when he wants you to.
