What is art? Traditionally art refers to any skill or mastery. Generally, art is a product of human activity with the intention of stimulating the human senses as well as the human mind.
Art encapsulates many genres, including painting, sculpture, photography - and beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder.
