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 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.
