I received an A-. TA's grade everything. Use the university images and her online lecture notes to create flashcards. Memorize, memorize, memorize. Tests are pure regurgitation. Seek TA help and approval for your paper and you will be fine. An A is TOTALLY in reach if you put in the time, memorize the correct material, and give it a true effort. And studying isn't half bad- you're looking at pictures! Definitely recommended for a GE!

DON'T TAKE THIS CLASS! Dr. Kennedy-Quigley cares about what she's teaching. But she talks fast and you'll have to write down all the information, so bring a laptop. Everything that comes out of her mouth will be on her tests. The first midterm we had to memorize 30 slides. You have to memorize the name,date, place, and information of each slide. She'll only test you on 7 though and you'll have to be super specific or you won't get a good grade.

There's a paper where you have to visit either the Getty museum or LACMA because she wants proof that you went.

Then the final you have to memorize 50 slides and she'll again only test you on 7 of them. Even if you memorize all of the slides you might memorize more information for one piece of art than another. And that'll will hurt your grade. I spend hours trying to memorize all of them and barely got a B for the class.

This is not an easy GE at all, especially when you have other more important classes to worry about.

I really loved this class. Professor Sonik gives a lot of work. There are weekly readings and home works. The class consists of two exams, weekly home works based on completion, and three writing exercises that require you to draw a picture. She also gives you a notecard for the exams.

To be honest I never did any of the weekly readings, and skimmed through the readings required to do the home works. That being said I literally wrote down everything she said in class. Overall, I loved this class and think Professor Sonik is an amazing lecturer.

Overall grade: A+
