Pretty easy, overall.
As someone who had little to no knowledge of art prior to this course, it was fascinating to learn about the history behind the Smithsonian museums in Washington DC in addition to many others. Each class member examined and presented regarding one specific chosen museum, so, although we learned about many, we also really delved into one we found interesting.
As a seminar course, we mostly were there to learn the material for the sake of learning itself! I found it very enjoyable. We only met a few times during the semester (I'd guess ten times or less), so it wasn't too exhausting or demanding of my time. We essentially just studied the art museums and their founders, histories, architecture, and prominent works. It was very enriching.

Advice for students:
Have fun with this course! It's very easy and is just interesting to learn about. The course itself isn't difficult and relies heavily on casual discussion.
