Certified Art History Professional (CAHP)

Art is a visual medium through which human ingenuity is communicated. The academic study of the evolution, timelines, and historical developments of the many visual arts and its representations through the use of line, shape, color, form, texture, and space is known as art history. This encompasses, to name a few, visual arts like painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, videography, filmmaking, design, and crafts. Cultural, political, religious, and economic aspects that affect how visual works of art appear are also examined in art history.
