Costeloe is a very understanding, helpful man that will routinely pull up a chair next to me and demonstrate enthusiastically how to do something. His presence makes art more enjoyable, and he obviously loves doing what he does. GO COSTELOE

I was only in Art class with him for a few months in 3rd form in 1996. I was never any good at it but he was kind and understanding with me.

Routinely showed up late to class, and made several people work outside in the cold with no jersey. Also, made someone do woodcutting with a sharp chisel while standing on one leg on a wobbly chair.

Mr.Costi might be tough at first but like every teacher is because they want their students to succeed, he is an awesome teacher because of his quirky remarks about students talking and misbehaving in class. Over all he is one of the reasons I enjoyed Art throughout my life in Wellington College.

I had Mr Costeloe for 3 weeks in 1994. He was a fantastic and visionary teacher, who helped me realise my vision for my papier-mache mask. Great shout there.

Mr Costeloe was my rotation Art teacher in Yr9. Great guy. Understood my shortcomings and turned them into strengths. He's funny and calm, and remained so even when I broke his saw. Truly a god among men.

He crushed my confidence. He gave me top praise. He put a piece of artwork I had done on the wall, saying it was the best and everyone would see it. He then gave me a mark of 33%. I will never understand why. I dropped my art career as a result.

Tim was my old art teacher. If I saw him in the street I'd shake his hand and thank him for everything. I'm glad he's still there, he's the best teacher I ever had.

When I started in 4th form, I couldn't paint to save myself. 4 weeks later, and i could. Great personality. He's hard to please, but when you do, it means so much more. His music is 'interesting'.

Shouts at Mr. Hawkins quite a lot. This makes him a great man. Quite suspicious of everyone who isn't Tim Costeloe though.
