It's a nice introduction to history of art, presented in chronological order. I liked the course but sometimes the pace is soo slooow. The grade is based on peer to peer assessments and the quizzes cover the video lectures. A lot of concepts and art movements explained, surely it's helpful for visual artists and graphic designers.

I was disappointed that this was a history of arts for artists, which focused on mostly obscure visual art. There was a tiny mention of Disney animation, but most of the other animation was related to when animation was an obscure artform, rather than anything publicly accessible. There was no mention of the art in gaming. If you love Picasso, you'll probably like this. I don't.
