 ==== ====Are you an art lover? Would you like to become one? Nothing to buy, simply enjoy art at:http://www.showoffart.com/  ==== ====Art is anything that people add to their 'output' which isnot functionally necessary and is other than the defaultproperties of that output. The word "art" has been derivedfrom the Latin word 'ars', which, loosely translated,means "arrangement" or "to arrange". This is the onlyuniversal definition of art, that whatever it is was at somepoint arranged in some way. There are many othercolloquial uses of the word, all with some relation to itsetymological roots. This word comes from the Greektechnic meaning art. Art and science are usually treated diagonally opposite toeach other. While science means some phenomenonresulting in truth, which is universal and objective innature. In other words, science findings can be repeatedunder the same set of circumstances anywhere in theworld at any given point of time. Same cannot be said ofart. Art, on the other hand is purely subjective in nature.Take for example, a painting - while one calls it amasterpiece, same feelings cannot be expected fromother individual. Art can roughly be divided into two, namely philosophicalart and aesthetic art. The philosophical type of artinvolves human figures for some purposive actions. Inother words, philosophical art depicts human condition orit is the conceptual frame of mind of the artist. Aesthetic art, on the other hand, shows the perceivedframe of mind. Two examples will help illustrate thesetwo points of view - a Mona Lisa painting is philosophicalart, while a demon being killed by a super human isaesthetic. These two categories are also called classicaland modern art respectively. There are other ways of classifying art - major amongthem being architecture, design, painting, music,drawing, literature, performing art, etc. While these havebeen (and still are) traditional forms of art performed by
human kind, newer forms of art have emerged with theadvent of technology. Some of the later era art forms aregames, animation, movie, computer art, shooting, etc. Two of the most researched areas of interest to artists,critiques and archeologists has been the art movement(or art history) and art school. An art movement is a typical style or tendency in art witha specific common philosophy, followed by a group ofartists during a restricted period of time (ranging from afew months to years or decades). Art school is anyeducational institute offering education to its students onvarious forms of art. Birth of art gave rise to another group of individuals - artcritics. Art critics study and evaluate a piece of art. Itsmain purpose is to rationalize the evaluation of art, andridding of any personal opinion affecting the work of art.Art criticism today deploys systematic and formalmethods to evaluate the piece of art. Museums are known to nurture and store work of artsacross the world. Early era museums were patronized bythe then kings and emperors. Today these aremaintained by governments or private trusts with orwithout public money. Three major museum institutes areBritish Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York andGalerie des Offices in France. Understanding art in its totality is almost an impossibletask for a human being. There are over 3,600 terms in artto be understood. And these are not definitive in nature.Art is when you are free to redefine these. redi zartey is the owner of Art Diz [http://www.artdiz.com] which is a premier resource for artinformation. for more information, go to [http://www.artdiz.com]  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Redi_Zartey
