She is very nice, knowledgeable, and an encouraging instructor. Though she is relatively new to the realm of teaching (she is a grad student), she is a very promising professor and I am sure will keep improving (though she is already skilled. I enjoyed the course. It is your basic survey of western art, and her emphasis is not on needless memorization but formal analysis and building your knowledge of works so you can really appreciate art and speak with confidence about pieces. Though I think her expectations and workload were a bit above the average, I think that's a good thing overall. Her comments are well received and will help you beyond art hum, especially if you are studying a field in which attention to detail is of unparalleled importance. If you have a chance to take a course with her, do it, I think she was generous with grades at the end.
