One of my college degrees is Fine Arts; I taught various courses which required the degree. Is this a high school class? Is it based more in Art of in Humanities? Could it be a World Cultures type class where you learn of the Arts of various areas of the globe? Is it a "hands on" art class where you produce artworks of your own? Is it an Art History type class?
To answer your question, you would have to know the curriculum of the class.
What should you do? Attend the class with an open mind; you don't have to have previous experience to have a new learning experience!
