Always Do the Reading
Many Small Assignments
This class was tough.
It is a class you have to work hard in. He mainly lectured with little participation from students. He gave extremely hard tests that had 100 essay questions in which he was looking for specific answers. He is willing to work with students though, especially if you work hard. If you are more of a hands-on learner, I do not recommend this professor. It is definitely a hard class but it is possible to get an A if you study hard and pay attention in class.
I gained a lot of needed knowledge for the rest of my art classes. He thoroughly explained art periods and influential artists in all of them. Because of that, when my professors in my other art classes asked for the style of a specific artist or mentioned an artist he/she liked, I understood what the style of that artist's period was and how to incorporate it into my pieces. I became a much better test taker and also learned how to study effectively for other courses. He always gave out study-aids and helpful tips before a test that helped me learn how to more effectively study large amounts of information.

Advice for students:
Be sure to stay on top of assignments he gives. He gives a lot of simple easy worksheets that become great study-aids but can hinder you if you don't finish on time. And answer the questions as thoroughly as possible. He likes a lot of detail and explanation in his tests. He stresses proper grammar so check your spelling and punctuation too. He will dock points for that. Flash cards will be your best friend when studying for tests. He will ask for the year, artist, period, style, and then an essay question.
