    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course for anyone who enjoys art. It's a great course to take even if you're not good at regular history classes because there isn't a lot of memorisation of dates; it's more about the story of the painting. The class was difficult in the sense that there was a lot to make sure you knew, but the few papers we had to write gave a lot of freedom in the subject; in our first paper, we picked a new work of art from an artist we discussed and visually analysed it, second we chose a viewpoint of Velasquez's Las Meninas, and lastly (and most fun) we had to visit a museum and study a painting and write a paper without outside research of the painting (writing it based off what we noticed, trying to contextualise the piece, compare it to another artist, etc.).

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about some of my favourite artists such as Van Gogh and Monet, and I was introduced to a great variety of other artists that I now have an interest in.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to go to every class that you possibly can. Additionally, it's really important to take good notes (remember, good notes don't necessarily mean neat notes). As long as you have the notes, you'll be fine. My version of studying for the exam was to type the notes I had written in class for the images we selected as a group.
