course
Michelangelo: From High Renaissance to Mannerism

Aug 2005

Lynn is an exceptional teacher. I took this course thinking about becoming an art history major, and now I definitely want to become one. She is extremely knowledgable, but presents the material in a way that caters to all her students, no matter what year or major. The class was enjoyable, fun, and definitely the most fulfilling class I have taken at Columbia.

Professor Catterson is incredibly caring and thoughtful about the needs of her students. It genuinely matters to her that you both enjoy and benefit from her class. She lends students books from her personal library, as well as emails helpful links to assist in researching tasks. When looking at powerpoint slides, she is very open-minded to varied intrepretations on the artwork. The highlight of this class is hearing Catteson's lecture on the relationship between the Lacoon Group and Michelangelo...good stuff! You won't be disappointed.
