Art History is not so much about the practical painting or other art lessons, but explores the evolution of art through the ages. For instance, in an undergraduate course, the course could trace the evolution and aspects of the Ancient World through the Prehistoric Art Course. At the postgraduate level, the history of art is traced from the period of the Renaissance up to the present times.
