What Is Art?

What Is Art?-art.jpg

Most dictionaries define art as, "The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."

How do YOU define art? Does it have anything to do with the medium you use to express it?

Does it even matter how we define or label it?

I think of art as a boarder thing. Anything created either by man or the Devine.

Guess art is everything that express feelings. When someone dance, you are not only seeing his/her dance, but also his/her hardwork, dedication, dicipline, good or bad mood, lot of things. The same goes with music, or any drawing/painting.

When I can see any feeling through an action or object, that is art for me.
