Why this? I chose the topic visual arts because I have an interest in all kinds of art and I really enjoy historical art. I chose the paleolithic period because the people in this time were just discovering new ways to live and hunt , and the art from this time period expresses the struggles they went through. Though my decision to pick this topic was not easy I think I made the right choice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
