Tufts University: Ikumi Kaminishi - History of Art - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Ikumi Kaminishi | FAH013 - Art of China | History of Art2005-01-18

Ikumi Kaminishi is a strange bird. Interested in a student's success, but not willing to be patient and lenient with grading. Hard to take as a first Art course. Never gives guidelines, or a description of expectations. Tough to understand - due to accent. She is passionate about Chinese Art, but lacks interesting lecture techniques. She gets boring quickly. Also, the slides that are used are often not particularly interesting examples of Chinese Art - which lead to more boredom. If you're interested in taking this class in order to satisfy a credit and have no true interest in Chinese Art - don't take this class - it's a waste of time and a real GPA buster.

Lots of reading which she expects you to actually do (haha NO). Then a paper describing a piece of artwork at the museum, and a research paper which is graded harshly. Two exams - which she calls quizzes - but are actually worth half the grade in the class. One has to identify the various slides - by year (tang dynasty, etc.) and by artists. So when you're studying a bronze bowl - suddenly lots of meaning comes into place. Too much work for an Art class.
