Pretty easy, overall.
I really enjoyed this course as an intro to the psychology of art and its application to various fields, such as, science and medicine. I think that the class was both interesting and challenging and allowed me to learn about art in a scientific and cognitive science way.
I think that this highlights of course were the applications to different fields, such as, health and medicine and how the various theorems can be applied to create novel technological solutions to health problems, such as, heart disease and hypertension. I also really enjoyed some of the guest lectures and background literature review that demonstrated the connections between cognitive science and art psychology. I learned a lot about how to use mathematical theorems to understand the scientific process of art and how it is constructed and broken down into its components.

Advice for students:
I would highly recommend taking this course before graduation as it is very interesting and dynamic. The in-class conversations and guest lectures were awesome and I really enjoyed learning about the professor's background in the field and his concepts (especially those relevant to the psychology of art). I would recommend studying for the exams by reading the book and using the lectures to help guide your focus for reviewing concepts in the book.
