Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course based on the experience and interaction with fellow artists it allows. It's a great place to get involved with experienced instructors when you can get one on one time with them. A side note though, if you're not dedicated to taking loads of art supplies,that can get pretty bulky and expensive, back and forth to class, then i wouldn't recommend it. You have to walk long distances with lots of supplies which might put a damper on the whole experience as a University art student.
I learned how to trust my instincts and follow through with each piece whether it be a painting or drawing. It takes a lot of trial and error to get your piece right and that it's okay to keep at something for an entire semester as long as you don't loose sight of completing it all together. The experience of observing fellow students doing their craft is one of the best learning mechanisms you can have, watching and learning from your own mistakes isn't enough sometimes, watching and learning what works and doesn't for others will make your own progress that much quicker.

Advice for students:
Take some time outside of class time to work on whatever projects you can. Practice makes perfect.
