    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Though the one I took was an online only class, I was only required to read from a textbook and take the assignments online. The assignments were simple and the textbook itself was quite interesting to read from. There was no need for lecture, just simple email interaction with the professor will solve any problems. Seeing as it is art appreciation, there would be an art related assignment, which was me going to the nearby art museum to study some works of art. In a nutshell, I had a great time!

    Course highlights:

    The going to the museum assignment may seem like a hassle, but for me, I enjoyed spending my day there. It required me to describe certain works of art and I did so, and I pretty much got too into the museum visit as I was captivated by the surroundings. I did brought my older brother with me, he had a great time, too.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you do your assignments in a timely manner and not slack off, you will be all good and ready for a good grade. I just stuck with doing 2 quizzes a week, no more and no less. I pretty much did all my work right after another class at the time, in a student lounge area.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hinte made the class so entertaining that I was a pleasure to come to class everyday. The contest wasn't difficult to understand, so it was easy to pay attention and participate in class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this class was when we had to do our museum project. This required you go to a museum and compare and contrast two masterpieces. I learned that on the outside paintings can look very different but the styles used to create them are similar.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just show up to class, it's an easy A if you do that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was an excellent class to attend and was both educational and interesting. The course curriculum not only gets the creative mind flowing, but also doubles as a history lesson. Students learn how to decipher a piece of artwork while also learning how and when certain techniques originated in history.

    Course highlights:

    This course really enlightened the art world for me. Through art appreciation I was able to better understand the reasoning behind certain types of art and also how timing played a key role in what techniques existed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to view a lot of slides on powerpoint, and take notes on everything. Every detail of the artwork and its' creator is important.
