Worst teacher in fine art so far... He is not clear and answer (sometimes) your question in a sarcastic and ironic tone... Do not explain the technique and meterial properly. His voice is really annoying too. I suggest that you spend a lot of time in the shops with the technician in order to understand well all the equipment, technique and material...

I personally didn't like Murray as a teacher. He's knowledgeable, but has a very hard time getting his point across. He's a very hard marker, and doesn't clarify why you got the mark.

Ahaha! Murray is an awsome. Yeah he marks really hard but he's hilarious in class. If you have a good sense of humour and arn't shy to use it on your teachers USE it with him. It will make things fun.

Unimaginative projects. A little on the dull side, but laid back enough that it doesn't matter. Not very good at expressing what he wants, but show up to class and bother working and you'll do okay.

I'd nothing but good marks in his class. Could it be that Ive studied architecture before? The only people he bashed were the ones that put minimum thought in their project. Most of the times i had to re-ask what we are supposed to do/general idea of a project. Think your stuff through & ull do good
