Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course because I learned more about art than I thought I would. The material teaches you that all of these tiny, insignificant things ultimately come together to form something beautiful. We were taught to stay away from objective views about art such as, "This is pretty, this is ugly." Instead, we were to truly analyze the work, and search for things deeper than the surface. Sure, you may consider a work "ugly", but that doesn't discredit all of the elements that went into it. The course truly opens your eyes to the fact that art is all around us, it is simply a matter of seeking it out.
I gained the knowledge to identify all of the different elements in art. As stated, it is incredulous to think about how we are surrounded by art at all times. The thing that made this class stand out was not only learning about famous artists such as Pablo Picasso and Leonardo Da Vinci, but also being able to relate these artists' concepts to real life. That is important, I feel, in classrooms today, and I can't stress this enough - through this class I learned that art is all around us. From the phones that we use on a daily basis to the trees outside. It requires you to think outside of the box, and to look at the bigger picture in a way.

Advice for students:
Pay attention to the lectures, and take a lot of notes. The notes will help you on quizzes. Be open, allow the art to mean something more than just a picture on a screen or a piece of paper. Be prepared to go into depth with your answers.
