ARTH270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Professor Ehnbom is a great lecturer. As long as you follow all his directions, come to class, and take good notes you are golden!!! Plus, he's funny and sarcastic but it only makes the class so much more interesting.

ARTH270 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ehnbom is smart and knows it. His knowledge and direct approach to the topics is engaging and really heightened my interest in the subject, of which I really had none before. He is very straightforward, which really helps, as the names of pieces and places are very long and totally foreign. Also, his tests and grading are fair.

ARTH264 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Ehnbom's a good, often humorous lecturer, comes across as very knowledgeable and just a little bit pompous (probably shouldn't ask questions after he starts lecturing). You can honestly ace this course by cramming intensely with your notes the night before either of the TWO TESTS. Note DATES, LOCATIONS, ARTIST, etc., and MEMORIZE THE WEBSITE.

arth491 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

A dank teacher. He's funny and knows more about the subject than most scholars. He's often cited in books on the subject and makes a seemingly dry subject very interesting. All his classes are worth taking

ARTH 350 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Fantastic class - I don't know where people are getting all this sadistic stuff, except that he has a sarcastic sense of humor. Pay attention and you'll do really well, he wants to make the stuff clear.

ARTH 264 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Not a hard class if you go to lectures and pay attention - the notes are the text for this class, not the book. I really loved this class and thought the professor was one of the very best art history professors I've had here.

ARTH 264 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Best Art History class I've ever had at UVA--loved the subject, and I thought all his tests were fair. He is very intelligent and will call you out on tests--slackers beware

horrible. evil. i failed the class because i cited the book in my essays: when i argued the points i'd made - DIRECTLY FROM THE CLASS TEXT - he blatantly disagreed with me. he needs to get it together.

ARTH 264 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: N/A Grade Received: N/A

Pompous, arrogant, and thinks he's funny but he's not. The course material could have been interesting but he makes it as bland as a bran muffin. Fewer A's given in this course than any course at UVa (according to Cav Daily 2003)

How do you feel about therapy? You'll need it after his class.
