Art

A painting by Renoir is a work of art.

Art is a creative activity that expresses imaginative or technical skill. It produces an artifact, also called a work of art, for others to experience. Those who do this are called artists. They hope to affect the emotions of people who experience it. Some people find art relaxing, or exciting, or informative. Many people disagree on how to define art. Some say people are driven to make art due to their inner creativity.

Art includes drawing, painting, sculpting, photography, performance art, dance, music, poetry, prose and theatre.

Types of art

Statues made by Botero, in front of the Culture Palace in Medellin, Colomnbia
A scene from the Musical Chicago, performed at a theatre, in Brno.
Nude Recumbent Woman, is a photograph by Jean-Christophe Destailleur. It was a featured image on Commons and is also a work of art.

Art is divided into the plastic arts, where something is made, and the performing arts, where something is done by humans in action. The other division is between pure arts, done for themselves, and practical arts, done for a practical purpose, but with artistic content.
