About Fine Arts

About fine art

Fine art is creating visual art. “Visual art is considered and created primarily for aesthetic and intellectual purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture.” In that sense, there are conceptual differences between the fine arts and the applied arts. As originally conceived, and as understood for much of the modern era, perceived aesthetic qualities required a refined judgment usually called having good taste, which differentiated fine art from popular art and entertainment.

Historically, the five main fine arts were painting, sculpture, architecture, music, and poetry. Added to the mix is performing arts and theatre. Fine art commonly includes more forms, such as film, photography, video production/editing, design, sequential art, conceptual art, and printmaking.
