    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's definitely a well-taught class that goes over the different aspects of paintings in each time period as well as situational context that are specific to artists or locations. The class is full of content so studying is required.

    Course highlights:

    Seeing the different works of the great sculptors of the renaissance was eye opening as to how great some of these artists actually were. Everyone knows Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Donatello but dont actually know their works. So that was cool.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get the textbook pdf and take notes on the paintings and sculptures that show up on both the textbook and the lecture slides. Those paintings will be the ones on the test so using ctr-f to find those while in class helps a lot. Make sure to study over the paintings covered that week before the week ends cause it's a lot of paintings and sculptures. Studying last minute will be difficult

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have learned how amazing everything is in art. I have taken a new appreciation for all the artworks I now come across.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a deep history of artworks and how the artists came to be. My favorite part was to be able to see each artwork and learn the intricate details about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes!! And do not cram for the exams - that never works! Study a little bit throughout the week and you should be fine when it comes to exam time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Although this course is highly informative, it contains no information imperative to students who are not majoring in art history. Although I passed the class without thoroughly studying for the complex exams, I was struggling throughout the course for it as well. Although the professor is really nice, I feel like I did not gain anything from the course in the long run. Because if this, I would not recommend this course to anyone.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about different rulers from different parts of the world who were in power during the time of the Renaissance. I also learned about different movements in the art world throughout history and the qualities that different artists employed during these eras. There are different qualities that artwork possessed during the Renaissance or Rococo periods, and by knowing these, you can determine the approximate date that a piece of art was created,

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take it unless you really care about art or history. Taking it myself was definitely an experience, but not necessarily one I would wish for anyone else. Try to find another way to get your art credit; this one may not be worth it.
