    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This Art Appreciation class is not like the ordinary art classes we've taken in grade school, where the teacher would show an example of work that we have to mimic. In this class, there is only one art project at the end of the semester, where the professor allowed us to use our creative minds to create a drawing and correlating poem. He let us express our own selves, without enforcing many rules. Not only is this class simple in terms of artwork, but it is very eye-opening because the professor teaches the meanings of artwork. Once you learn about the artists' life and/or intentions about the piece of art, it makes you realize about the meaning of life, and appreciating how others see it.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this class, I earned a greater respect for art, no matter how "stupid" it may be according to modern society. There are an unlimited amount of ways that someone could express themselves, and art is one getaway from life. I also learned about the backgrounds of the artists, and makes me want to feel sympathy and empathy for them with the situations they have gone through to make them create art. The highlights of this course is learning about the different types of art and how it has evolved through time. Art has been around for many centuries, and it is very interesting to see how the world perceived art from 500 years ago to today. After taking this course, I wanted to go to many national art museums and see the paintings we learned about in person. So far, I have been to multiple museums in Philadelphia and D.C., allowing for my creative adventures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is very interesting, however, it is an overwhelming amount of information. There are three exams, and it is all about fully understanding the artwork and memorizing the facts about it and the artist. I would highly recommend putting in a few hours of studying a week to really understand the art and to further prepare for upcoming exams. It should not be very hard, considering that the information is either interesting, weird, outrageous, or mesmerizing. I would consider this course because I believe it really shows the Humanities portion of earning your degree by exposing the life and hardships of the artists.
