    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    He is a good teacher, keeps in touch with the students and hits all of the course topics. Although I took the course online, I assume it's just as simple in the classroom.

Included is the study of the development of human creative expression from prehistoric times to the present. An emphasis is placed on the interrelationships of the arts and major artistic movements.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely, take a lot of notes, and studying never hurts. Any extra research prior to taking the course is also beneficial.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The final requires the student to create a replica of a baroque painting, either by painting it or by photographing a subject acting out the painting. This is fine, however, 90% of the painting options are nudes.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about art and forced myself to delve deeper into my mind to see what was deeper in the paintings.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep an open mind. Think outside the box.
