    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I love learning about history. This course takes History and Pop Culture and Art and puts it all together. It's exciting to me that we see visually what the events in History created and how it affected how people viewed art and how they expressed themselves in the midst of the times they were living in.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much. Not just about American Art culture but, how the Art in different countries and events that took place like the movies in England affected American cinema. Or how Art that lets say Picasso painted caused the elite in America to steal the Mona Lisa. The world is change by Art. Art can change History and so shape the Culture.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must read the material. You must be ready to write paragraphs and essays explaining in your own words the events of the time. Choose the times that interest you the most. Art, Culture, and History is fascinating. Make sure you capture the spirit of the times of that specific era.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was filled with history that is crucial and relates to art at the same time. The professor was very engaging and that aids in making you like the class and all that it has to offer.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the pieces of art and photographs taken during the Great Depression. I learned that art was funded by the federal government during the Great Depression and helped to spread a message.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write down every deadline from this course in your planner immediately. Try to do the readings ahead of time all while taking notes of your own at the same time.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course online. This professor does not only do entire chapter reading assignments and then discussion forums like some professors. Instead, he gives you simple yet precise powerpoints, videos pertinent to current chapter topics, and short quizzes. He is very helpful and posts reminders in announcements, which is needed by everyone.

    Course highlights:

    This professor's knowledge of the subject is noticeable, even through this online course. Great class that helps you understand 20th century art that we may otherwise turn our shoulder upon. Widened perspective.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Remember your deadlines, do not submit anything late. Not only is that not good for school, but it affects every other aspect in your life.
