    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course at Palo Alto College. Because, (a it is enormously instructive on the the influence and history of art, and (b it gave me an even greater love for art than I had before, (and that is quite the accomplishment) and lastly, (c it contributed towards my art credit to graduate high school; it is an accredited course at the college I hope to attend.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest highlight for me was visiting the San Antonio Museum of Art, and just spending hours in front of a single painting; Scholar's Rock by Mark Flood. It was the final project of the semester, and the assignment was to find a piece that struck a cord instinctively and observe the elements that created it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    All you need to get an easy A in this class, is to participate; give your opinion (when asked for), show up for each class, and complete the assignments on time. The assignments are incredibly easy, and the professor clearly loves the subject, so it is easy to engage with the subject.
