    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Shanghavi is an amazing educator. She teaches you how to identify and art piece based on the style, techniques, and materials used rather than forcing you to memorize a thousand names. She "teaches you to fish" rather than handing you one.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Shanghavi was very fun to listen to. She kept a light but serious atmosphere that promoted discussion while still maintaining control of the room.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to adapt to the radically different teaching method as fast as possible and you will ace every exam. Learning to observe and identify is a lot harder than memorizing names at first, but once you adapt you cut study time down three fold.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If I could rate this Professor with 0 stars I would. Throughout the course she made students look dumb if they didn't answer a question correctly and belittled anyone who had a different perspective on ancient artwork than she did. She made the exams ridiculously hard and expected students to memorized up to 300 facts plus additional information for essays during exams.

    Course highlights:

    We had a hurricane in the middle of the quarter and I didn't have to see this woman for two weeks. That was the only highlight. I learned a few things from lectures and can recognize different styles of art and architecture now, but I wanted to rip my soul out during every lecture to travel to a far, far away place.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't take this course, wait a quarter, three quarters if you have to, but DO NOT take JANE RHEL. I'm just trying to save your soul. Head my warning.
