The only easy A art class I ever took was in high school. Because in some high schools, they don't take the arts seriously. Once I got into college, getting an A in an art class was exactly what vesperholly described.
I don't agree that general majors like English or philosophy are easy. My son double majored in poli-sci and philosophy. He said his more advanced level philosophy & logic courses made his brain bleed, they were that hard.
