    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is called Dancing Molecules, Dancing Bodies. We looked at the anatomy of a person and related it to dance.

    Course highlights:

    We looked at skeletal systems in the body, muscle systems, lever systems, looked at parts of the brain that make us have "rhythm" or "beat", we also did some dissections! We looked at chicken thighs and legs, seeing how their tendons worked. We also looked at sheep hearts and brains! Besides all the anatomy aspect, there was a lot of dancing.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for movement activities, even on days where there wasn't dance we would still have to do muscle workshops to identify fixators, antagonist, origins, and insertions.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class to a student looking to learn about art and some psychology alongside that pursuit of art. For anyone but a Freshman this class I think would be too slow of pace. If you are looking for more of a challenge the start of your college career then I would recommend something else.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights included plaster mask making, self portraits, and wooden mask carving. We used plaster gauze to replicate our faces, then shaped the masks to our desire, painting the final forms. Also the self portrait project allowed me to look closely at my face and try to draw myself in a mirror. I was able to improve after repeated attempts.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Just try to put your all into the artwork you do. Put your full effort forward and do at least the required minimum because then you'll see improvement. Try to learn as much as you can from the reading, or learn something from each reading regardless if you share the author's point of view or not.
