  • Joy Underwood United States of America It's a great course. I have studied art nearly all my life, and I still learned something new about some of the artists in this course. And even learned about 3 artists that I don't recall ever hearing of before I took this course (the ones in modules 4, 5, and 6). I would have liked to have seen other artists such as Degas, Van Gogh, Renoir, and/or Matisse featured in the course as well (other than just a mention of them or their work here and there). I personally felt that the religious overtone from the beginning to about the middle of the course was a bit much; but, I guess that is just part of the Renaissance period. Overall, it was a great learning experience, and I'm glad I took this course. 2014-08-14 08:08:41
