Mr Mackay is a great guy but not so good at his lessons, you will spend 85℅ of the lesson standing watching his demos but he really cared about his students and won a prize for the top merit giver
He's alright when he isn't spending half the period going over what you're doing
The whole art department are far too controlling which I think is terrible for a creative subject. Plus he talks too much. He takes an interest though and is a quite good teacher.
