    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I love my professor! She was amazing and she had such great energy. She made this course very interesting and I enjoy the way she teaches.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the first paper I wrote. I received an A and I was very happy. The paper was about Peter Paul Rubens and his art. He was one of the artists we discussed in class and I did the paper on his wonderful piece that it in the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit. The name of the piece is St. Ives of Treguier, Patron of Lawyers, Defender of Widows and Orphans. I chose Rubens because I love his artwork and how he really displayed techniques from Baroque style.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is pretty easy if you're paying close attention to detail. I sat in the front of the class along with a notebook and a handheld recorder. Each night after the class, I reviewed my notes and also what I heard on the recording. I paid attention to important information about the artists and their artwork. I studied 3 times a week with note cards and I had a friend quiz me. This is a great course to take because you learn so much about different artists from different periods of time and also different styles and techniques that will help you better understand your art.

    Don't buy the "required" textbook.
