Loved him as a teacher and blame him entirely for my career in the ARTS :)
Tim was one of the best teachers I have ever had. He was also a fantastic person full of life. He didn't always let you do what you wanted but he sure did make you learn what you needed. I'm am so blessed to have him guide me through the years.
So sad Tim retired. He was an amazing teacher who knew everything there was to know about the world of visual art and teaching. Funny and great!! Even though he's not a permanent teacher at the school anymore you will still see him around because he is doing little workshops and stuff for the visual art classes. Look forward to seeing him around.
I was a student of Tim's WAY back in 1994-1999. He has been once of the best influences in my life. He often made me cry, but I can honestly say, his opinions of my work, good and bad, were meant to draw (no pun intended) the best out of me. Tim was not popular because he was easy, but because he is honest, charismatic, strong, and believes in producing better artists out of his students. Me experience is that Tim DesClouds WILL force you out of your comfort zone, and it's all to improve YOU...
Tim is the Don Draper of real life. I was inTIMidated by him in grade 9 nd took everything seriously, but i've learned to not take it personally. He always expects the best from everyone, to go beyond your comfort zone and strive to be the best you can be. He knows his business. He will make you **** of laughter at least twice a day. He's a great leader: he keeps you on task. I am a grade 12 student at Canterbury High,Visual Arts program. He IS the best. Tip: listen to everything he says. do it.
A great teacher, gives you praise when you deserve it but lets you know when you need to work harder. Also, twisted sense of humour
tim is the most amazing teacher ever! unlike teachers who give out easy marks, he makes you work for it. he wants all is students to do well in the class. plus, hes also super funyyyyy
Amazing teacher - Strict, which helps me get motivated, and sarcastic
My son Kevin Martel was taught by Tim, (who was obviously Kevin's FAVOURITE teacher ever). Now Kevin is Associate Animation Supervisor on Rango! Thanks Tim!!! Watch for Kevin's name in the credits.
Intimidating at first but it probably the coolest teacher out there. Consider yourself lucky to have him in vis. amazing guy!!!!
Woowowww!!!!! Count your blessings if you have his class!
the most halarious, sarcastic teacher you'll ever find. amazing artist
i love time! he's so nice and funnnyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. :D
I really enjoyed his class. He maks everyone stay on task and he really knows his subject.
Excellent teacher. I'm doing great in university because of him.
Fair teacher to all his students.High, but fair expectation.It seem all his students do well in his class.
tim is a god! I love him, I'm in another city and miss him dearly!
yay! Tim changes people's LIVES. He is an amazing person and teacher. You are a fortunate person to learn from him. He will push you to be someone beyond what you thought possible.
Love how strict he is!! I get stuff done. I'm motivated. I work hard. He keeps it interesting, fun, and still manages to keep us on track (well, most of us :P)
Tim was my art teacher in 1986 and he was THE BEST and obviously he still is! A dedicated teacher and talented artist...Respect!!!
can teach anyone how to paint, sculpt or do anything
Tim was the best basketball coach. Oh and Co-Ed Volleyball coach too. Especially given who he had to work(put up) with.
Tim was my favourite teacher made me work harder than i think i ever had. He is a wise man and knows more than he lets on.
love this man to death! he knows all his students and what they are cpable of and leads them in the right direction to excel in what they are great at.wonderful advice and makes art history awesome!!!
very knowledgable and talented teacher taught me alot and influenced my style alot. great person, great motivator tought but fair (and funny)
amazing teacher/friend who you can joke with and get so much critiques from. NO SLACKING OFF!
Tim Desclouds was an asset to any student who wished to pursue arts. With current practical experience in the visual arts scene he really came in use. He encourage innovation, which is impeccable.
TIM:my fav vis teacher, made me sit in the dark corner for talking... but THATS OK! ;) i still think ur great, and funny :)
He is the most amazing teacher i have ever had although he may act like one of us he still knows his stuff and pushes you to do your best
best teacher ive ever had, one of those few acid heads who somehow pulled it together but still gets the occasional flashback. i loved all the assignments.
Tim is totally awesome, his classes are fun, he teaches you a lot and knows exactly what he's talking about it and he really cares about his students.
Tim knows what he's talking about. If you want help, ASK. Respect him and he will respect you. If you don't want to be teased, tell him so and he will stop.
It's hard in his class. But that's just what makes you strive for his approval. He knows EXACTLY whats wrong in a picture and he's cool enough to understand you. ^-^
dont make comebacks until grade ten, but then always make comebacks - he'll like you better!
Definetly not an easy marker, you earn your marks! He's still CHS' best teacher
He hasn't noticed me (yet). He acts like one of us. He jokes and makes sure everyones alright, having fun and doing their best.
awesome teacher. really helpfull. knows his stuff because he's done it all before.
Tim is the best teacher. I was so lucky to be in his class. Very easy to talk to (well, if he WANTS to be:-)), clear, helpful and has the best sence of humor
strange guy... but really helpful when you ask him. only an easy teacher if he likes you
he's very artistic in a way strange man but he's cool
he picks favorites and doesn`t really help you when you need it. i.e., portfolios!!!
He's really really heplful! I think he is probably my fav. Art teacher. He's critical, but that's good. Particulairly since it's constructive...He's cool!
the best teacher i've ever had, he makes you want to work. SO MUCH FUN.
