Professor QK is hilarious. Her lectures are extremely engaging and as someone else mentioned, she does do interpretive dancing! This is by far one of the best classes I have taken at UCLA (I am a senior and I am a south campus major). There is 1 midterm, 1 research paper, and 1 final but the final is just a second midterm because it is not cumulative. To get an A, just write down EVERYTHING she says in lecture (or type ... I typed because she a lot). Do this, and you will start to see themes and pick up on easy patterns. She gives a slide review for each test of about 40 slides that she can test from. There are 3 essays on each test: 2 essays where you are given a slide that has an artifact and you ID it then write as much as you can on it in 10 mins, the 3rd essay is a compare and contrast essay between two slides (you have to ID both) and you have 15 mins for that. Slide IDs consist of the name of the artifact or building, the architect (if there is one), the location, and the date. It may seem daunting to memorize that many, but it really is not. Start memorizing little by little about 5 days before the test and you will nail it. I made flash cards for the information. If you are able to know everything about a slide that Professor QK said in lecture and you write that down on your test, you will get an A. The research paper is aimed to help you grade and just expose you to more art (you are required to go to LACMA or the Getty or the Getty Village). The paper is maximum 5 pages long and it is really easy to write 5 pages on any of the art pieces she gives you the choice to choose from. Discussion is mandatory, but that is where you go over the overarching themes and patterns to hammer home the ideas presented in lecture. The only HW in the class was reading summaries due in discussion every week but the summaries were only 2-3 sentences. The textbook is not needed. Go to class, take good notes, and don't buy the textbook. Take this class if you can!

If you take this class, make sure you're actually interested in the subject matter. I, personally, could barely recognize all the "patterns" that the professor referred to for the art of specific civilizations. I struggled just trying to remember them all because of how little interest I had in the class. Lectures are important! She shares a lot of information for the different pieces that will be on the exams. Your grade really depends on your TA, some are pickier with the details than others.

Professor KQ is extremely knowledgable. I took 118C w/ her. She talks really fast and sometimes really low so you'll def need to type notes and possibly also record. She's really funny and knows what she's talking about. Her midterm was pretty straight forward: memorizing slides and writing essays. But she is an extremely tough grader. She expects you to write a lot of clearly thought out information in a very little amount of time. Kind of seems unfair that she expects us to recite everything that she's said in class during the midterm, but she's constantly looking at notes when she lectures us.

Book hasn't been necessary. Doesn't ask to see if you've done the reading. One in class midterm, one research paper, and one take home final. You'll have to go to class and it won't be the easiest A, but you can definitely say you learned something when you leave her class.
