Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The professor is energetic and uses a variety of teaching styles to cater to all students. She will make analogies to modern culture, such as popular TV shows, talk with her arms to explain the movement and aspects of the piece, and ask plenty of questions to the class to keep students engaged.
You learn about the periods of art, started at some of the first artwork ever found (cave art) through the Renaissance period. Have you ever wondered why certain colors are used sparingly, such as blue, up until the 19th century? Or, how about the symbolization and politics behind famous pieces of art? These questions on how art was made, pigments used and why, symbolization, and meaning will be answered.

Advice for students:
Show up to class! The professor will post all of the PowerPoints online, but reading these and cramming before the exam is not the same as being there. I hardly had to study for this course, because the professor is so engaging and uses memorable analogies in class.
