    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a wonderful course because it teaches you how to not only do an analysis and summary of a work of art but also how to interpret and appreciate art.

    Course highlights:

    The beautiful work of art that one studies in this course are by far the highlights of the class. I have learned how to study an artwork and understand its style, function, and meaning.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice everyone to take this course. Art is a part of daily life and we come and we come across it everywhere we go, at home, work, restaurants, ect.. It's nice to be able to look at an object, see it as art and describe what it means to the artist who created it and to yourself. My advice for studying in this class is do research. The more you learn about the artist and the artwork the easier it will be to analyze it.
