    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course even for people who are not majoring in art history. This course takes a different perspective on Dutch Art within the 17th century, and helped me become a better critical thinker.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that not everything is exactly what it seems, especially within artwork, and also how much history and information each painting could say about its creator.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always particpate, if you put a lot into this course you will get a lot out of it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very passionate and energetic and class discussions are really interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course for me was his teaching style. He taught us how to apply different analysis methods to the real world, rather than just making us read the textbook and quizzing us on it.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend every class and participate in class discussions, as you are graded on your level of participation.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The section I took was Dutch Art. Growing up in enjoyed art, but over the years I lost interest. I didn't know what this course was about. I just took it because it was required. We didn't just talk about the art, we also discuss the painting with in the context. It was really interesting. Even if you don't like art, it wouldn't be an awful class to take. It was one of the easier Reading the Arts classes. The professor understands that we are not art students she is very lenient when it comes to grading.

    Course highlights:

    I didn't know how much history affect art. Politics and economics also play a huge role in art. It was really interesting to see how these outside influences had such a big impact on the art. There is also an entire part of the FBI that investigates art theft. It is really cool. We learned how to tell a fake from a real and sometimes even experts cannot tell the difference!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class. Do the reading assignments the night before so you are ready to discuss it in class. There is a participation grade. Stay on top of the readings. Don't not put them off.
