Learn the basic principles of how to approach, analyze, and appreciate great works of art the way an artist would.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 12/5/2019
I enjoyed the class but it was essentially the same presentation from the Six Hour Art Major. If I knew it was essentially the same material, I likely would not have taken it. It was a good class - but I would not recommend taking it in addition to the Six Hour Art Major course.
