Nick doesn't seem to have an agenda in mind when teaching and comments about artists seem to be related but not really important.
I know this is part of the core, and a mandatory class, but I would have like to see something more substantial added by the professor.
I do not feel I've learned the least about art history despite this class. Lectures are always tangential and do not add much beyond what the average viewer can see.
There isn't a sense of coherence of building upon previous history in most of the classes.
I'm not really sure I left this class with more than I had going in.
Then again, if you are looking for a mind numbing class that doesn't take a shitload of work to do well (you will have to read at least some articles for a paper) and doesn't require memorizing artwork or dates - maybe Nick is for you.
