What is Art

Art has no satisfactory defination. Though I tried my best and it is my endeavour to make you understand what art is.
In old days art is considered as something that is beautiful, that pleases your eyes and that represents something. Now defination of art has changed a lot. Art is a medium of expression where the individual and culture come together. It is a process of arranging elements in such a way that it affects and influences senses, emotions and intellect. It has been defined as a vehicle for the expression or communication of emotions and ideas. It is a superior skill that you can learn by study, practice and observation.

Britanica online defines art as "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others."



Art is consist of Form and Genre or Content.
An art Form is the specific shape, elements of art, material or quality an artistic expression takes for example canvas texture, color, shape of brush, oil paint etc.
Whereas Content is idea based. It is a set of conventions and style. It generally means what artist meant to portray or the ways in which the work was influenced like nature, religion or spirituality.



With all that, I think you must have understand lot about art. So why to wait go and get your art elements and awake artist in you.
