I hated this class. It was incredibly boring and I didn't learn anything, which was a bummer because I'm genuinely interested in the topic. I took this class because I'm Asian but don't know much about my country's culture/history/art and wanted to know more, but this class was terrible and also made me a little uncomfortable. She spoke about Asian art and culture in a way that made me feel very awkward, especially as she is a white woman (always talking about how "exotic" and "different" Asian art was, and that it was okay for students to laugh or be weirded out). Not to mention that the actual class and lectures/discussion was so painfully boring to sit through. If you're okay with all of that and just want an easy A though, go for it.
