Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was a good course. I've always enjoyed archeology and even participating in dig sites, but never in Egypt. This is an introductory course on Ancient Egyptian Art. While it isn't all encompassing, it does hit an all art history from the beginning to around 85 B.C.E. The book is has quite a few nice illustratings, and the reading is pretty good. The course gets you just comfortable enough in the history that you could talk this to first year students.
There are a few papers that are required to write, but if you don't mind having some fun with it, then you will be fine. I wrote a paper on the embalming and preparation techniques used by the Egyptian pharaohs, but I put a twist on it to make it look appealing and akin to a 77 day spa. The instructor asked to use this paper for future reference when a student was having problems with asserting their own voice in a paper.

Advice for students:
Read the book. Don't just glance over it and expect to understand it. If you don't read it, the tests will seem like gibberish and you won't get a good grade. There is no reason why this course can't be fun. All of my course mates had a good time conversing in the normal discussion forums as well in the opinions of our comments. Some of them were out right witty and could even be out write honest.
