Art Humanities is officially known as Masterpieces of Western Art and unofficially as Art Hum. It covers painting, sculpture, and architecture. Some professors also append some photography and even film.

The course is part of the Core Curriculum. It focuses on "masterpieces" as well as the context those pieces were created in. In general, it's a fun course. There is very little reading, and a lot of zoning out in front of slides, as well as museum trips. The fun stops when you have to memorize every bit of information about the aforementioned slides for the midterm and final.
