    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course goes above and beyond its mission of trying to persuade you to appreciate art. It gives you a history of it, and educates you on why art is art. A truly fascinating subject.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I gained in intimate knowledge on the history of art, and why certain famous artists may not have been considered the legendary artists they are seen as today. You also delve into what makes great pieces of art truly great.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take plenty of notes, join in and cooperate with the professor, and most of all let all of the information he is telling you about really sink in so you can appreciate the course for years to come as I have.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though it is a required class, it does allow the appreciation of art to be understandable. There is always a reason behind art and this class shows you why. Through this class, art elements and styles are learned and shown in every art work. This class was a unique experience for me and never once did I once regret my decision on taking this class during the summer.

    Course highlights:

    The best highlights of this class would be getting out of the classroom and going to the museum. Every thing that I learned I was able to see them physically at the museums. I realized that whatever I thought was pointless was in reality used by true artists. The elements and styles were physically and better perceived in real life.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! Art as simple as it sounds is more complex than one thinks. I went in thinking it was just about colors and lines but it was more than that. I had a quiz every day and had to study every day. Each lesson was different and required the amounts of studying to ensure the good grades.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you like drawing, painting, sculpting any kind of art but also love to learn then this would be a great course for you because it teaches individuals the history of certain types of art and how the old art has influenced present artworks and artists. It also breaks down art into time periods such as prehistoric, classical, modern, contemporary, etc. so you can pick what you are interested in the most and gain knowledge about the art type, artworks, and artists that originated from that time period.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was not only having one way to learn about appreciating art; the class connected to may students of different learning styles. For example, if you are a person that loves to read then sometimes in class we would read a chapter in class. If you are a person who needs to see and hear how the art was made or how it came to be then we would watch short clips and movies about that specific art subject and if you are a person that needs to be hands on then you could also work with the art materials used for a specific time period. What I learned from this course is that you do not only learn how to appreciate art but different cultures, religions, and people because most of the time that is where some of the art came from.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn a lot in different ways. If you are a person that only likes to focus on one thing at a time then embrace yourself because this course open individuals minds to think critically and differently. It makes connections between culture and religion, people and the environment, and how all these factors influenced art.
