The different categories of art

We express our thoughts, ideas and suggestions through different categories of art. Do you know what those categories are?

There are  literature (including poetry, drama, story, and so on), the visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.), the graphic arts (painting, drawing, design, and other forms expressed on flat surfaces), the plastic arts (sculpture, modelling), the decorative arts (furniture design, mosaic, etc.), the performing arts (theatre, dance, music), music (as composition), and architecture (often including interior design).

Today we will talk about visual, graphic and performing arts

Visual art- The visual arts are those creations that we can see rather than something like the auditory arts, which we hear. The visual arts include mediums such as sculpture, architecture, photography, film, and printmaking. These forms of art give us a visual experience of what the painter/director/sculpture is thinking in their mind.

Graphic- Graphic art is a lot like visual arts except in graphic arts we use a 2D or flat surface as base. Painting, drawing or even brush art is an example of graphic art as they all our made on flat surfaces.

Performing arts- Performing art is the most interesting mode of art as in performing art we convey our emotions through physical movement and speech. Dance, theatre, opera, music, magic, circus performances and puppetry are all considered types of performing arts.
