He is a very good teacher but art has a very strict time period. If a student is struggling it is hard to keep up with the work set. If you always finish on time then you will be fine.
Very skillful but harsh teacher. Listen hard and do what he says. Even if you aren;t any good at art, putting in the effort will be worth it in the end. I feel like Mr Holton should've been an art reviewer rather than teacher but he still knows what he's doing. Don't be scared to keep going to him and asking for help or advice on a piece, be specific however (e.g "How can i make this better?" = bad "Do you think this is in the right place?"/"Am i using the right colour here?" = good)
Infuriating and condescending and unpredictable and... the epitome of an art teacher. I personally needed something a little different.
The best teacher i have come across in the arts department. Everything is explained well and always with a bit of humour. Very strong in knowledge of painting and art history.
made the art room the best place to be, a great teacher with so much knowledge to share- cookie days were the best too
Many years ago, I was in my 7th form year and learning to paint for the first time. I was lucky to have met Mr Holton and he eventually became my mentor, by default really because there was no one else. He'd taught us Art History and Painting but most importantly he'd given us a tool of expression, a way to communicate and a life long passion in Art. And for that, I'm grateful.

Very interesting and clever person. Brilliant teacher to have for a subject as cryptic as Art History
Cool as teacher, very clear with instructions, never a boring lesson. Lets us get on with our work and enjoy it at the same time, a very clever person.
The awesomest teacher EVER so helpful and full of information that interests the entire class!
