We all know that Bay is one of the most artistic characters on television, so when she attempts to step up her game by enrolling in a college level art course, she discovers that it's not all just finger paints and glitter. 

Bernhard joins the series as Bay's eccentric and passionate art teacher who was an extremely popular artist in the '80s, thanks, in large part, to her distain for wearing clothes. And joining Bay in her artistic endeavor is Tank (Adler), a jocky frat boy who would rather please his fraternity brothers than show up to class on time.

Take a look at the exclusive clip above to see Tank's hilarious classroom disruption, and find out why his favorite accessory is a bowling ball.

The winter premiere of Switched at Birth airs Monday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
