Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you get a good teacher this class is great. The material actually can be interesting if you give it a chance, but the nature of the course is very you-either-know-it-or-you-don't, which makes it hard.
I learned the purpose behind art. Recently I visited an art gallery and I actually could point out certain features, symbols, and historical references within the art pieces (even those that we never studied in class), which was actually kind of exciting.

Advice for students:
Study! Study! Study! You either know it or you don't, so you have to study if you want to pass. The free response.essay questions are easier to BS, but good luck with the multiple choice.
