    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was my first time learning about Western European art and I was amazed at how engaged I was the whole time! As an artist, I am biased towards the subject, but Professor Haynes kept me interested, even with it being a lecture class, and had challenging tests that made sure you understood the material well. I cannot emphasize enough how her teaching style made the information interesting. This class is one of the main reasons I chose to study abroad in Italy the following semester!

    Course highlights:

    She focused on techniques and developing styles, so I was able to identify them in numerous works as opposed to spending all of the time on a few specific works. She also is very expressive in her lectures, so you don't have to worry about a monotonous class.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    It covers quite a bit of art through the ages, but as long as you pay attention and answer her questions, it's a very fulfilling class! There's no homework, but definitely read at least part of each chapter in the book.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Andres is a great professor who is interesting, eloquent, and understanding if you make the effort to speak with her/ask questions. She grades solely on the 3 exams (each with an essay question), 1 paper that will be based on a museum trip, and participation. The class is straightforward and easy to study for, plus she reviews everyday so it is hard to miss information.

    Course highlights:

    In the course you will have an essay and for the essay you visit the Getty Villa which is a beautiful museum near Malibu. It was probably the most fun part of the class and it gives you the opportunity to go for free (unless you go on an unscheduled day). The assignment teaching you how to analyze art for both how it is composed and displayed as well as its meanings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes and if note taking is not enough to help you memorize everything then make flash cards, because the class is almost completely a memorization class! At every start of the class she reviews previous class material, so make you are prepared to answer any questions she may ask (all it requires is a quick review of your notes) and make sure to participate because its the difference between an A and B (10% of your grade).
