Pretty easy, overall.
Dr. Barr is arguably one of the best professors I've ever had. She cares so much about each and every student-- and she means it. She wants you to succeed, and she doesn't teach it like a standard art history course-- she focuses on why the pieces were being made, and the historical and narrative context behind all of them, and the artist biographies. It's not just memorizing information because you have to-- she genuinely engages you in the content, and never before have I felt so confident going into an exam, or had more fun listening to a lecture. I really wish they'd give her more than fifty minutes to speak.
Dr. Barr gives many tidbits of information that I feel like you just won't get with any other professor. She loves what she does, loves what she teaches, and knows so much about a LOT of things-- and if she doesn't know, she will try to find out for you.

Advice for students:
Go to the lectures-- seriously, it's worth it, and she will really, really appreciate it-- and pay attention in class. Go to the reviews. Take good notes. Do not be afraid to approach her-- she will NOT judge you. She wants to help you succeed-- seriously. Professors always say that, but she's the only professor where I've really, truly believed it when she said it. Be interested in the material-- and trust me, it's not hard to be interested in the material.
