 The word

We also use the word
in a more general sense toencompass other forms of creative activity, such as dance,drama, and music, or even to describe skill in almost anyactivity, such as “the art of bread making” or “the art of travel.” In this article

Defining Art
Definition of art that seems correct to many Americans inthe 21st century is likely to differ greatly from definitions of art in non-Western cultures, in tribal societies, and in otherhistorical periods.
Our rather open-ended definition may even sound strangeto those in contemporary Western society who expect art tobe limited to familiar categories such as painting andsculpture.
Defining art raises problems also in that since thebeginning of the 20th century some artists have sought tochallenge the very definition of art.
 Their art objects may lack the qualities long associated withart, such as beauty, skilled craftsmanship, and clearorganization.
