"I would like to be part of the "Everyone Loves Julia" bandwagon, but I'm not. For the record, I got an A- in her class, and was disappointed with that; so you can factor that in when evaluating my review. In fact, I would be okay with the grade, but she fairly clearly gave me the grade without ever having read my final paper - which unfortunately became clear when I asked her what she thought about it. (Moreover, she became stunningly bitchy, truly beyond anything that I have ever experienced with any other professor or teacher, when I asked her for feedback: "You're almost saying something intelligent here. Did you plagiarize this?" No, and you're out of line.)
Anyway, to stick with art for a second, Julia's lectures are pretty damn good, though she's not a particularly good listener, and she has trouble when a student notes anything subtle or that she herself has not thought about before. She also fairly clearly hasn't spent much time looking at some of the paintings that are in her slides. I also would warn you that you will get marked down a half grade for being a guy (if you are one), or at least you'll have to compensate for that in some way. On the other hand, since she processes things heuristically (intuitively and superficially), you can probably use that to your advantage if you know that going into the game.
