what is art?
Art is the product or process of deliberately arranging items (often with symbolic significance) in a way that influences and affects one or more of the senses, emotions, and intellect. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, photography, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics, and even disciplines such as history and psychology analyze its relationship with humans and generations.(WIKIPEDIA)
Any brief definition of art would oversimplify the matter, but we can say that all the definitions offered over the centuries include some notion of human agency, whether through manual skills (as in the art of sailing or painting or photography), intellectual manipulation (as in the art of politics), or public or personal expression (as in the art of conversation).
Historically, the five greater fine arts were painting, sculpture, architecture, music and poetry, with minor arts including drama and dancing. Today, the fine arts commonly include the visual art and performing art forms, such as painting, sculpture, collage/assemblage, installation, calligraphy, music, dance, theatre, architecture, photography, conceptual art, and printmaking. However, in some institutes of learning or in museums fine art, and frequently the term fine arts (pl.) as well, are associated exclusively with visual art forms.Confusion often occurs when people mistakenly refer to the fine arts but mean the performing arts (music, dance, drama, etc.)(WIKIPEDIA)
The different types of arts as of today are classified in 2 categories i.e. fine arts and performing arts. However, the term 'art' is considered as different from 'arts'. It incorporates only the visual form of arts. The other types such as literature and performing arts do not come under the term 'art'-(buzzle.com).
MODERN VISUAL ARTS
Fine art or the fine arts encompass art forms developed primarily for aesthetics and/or concept rather than practical application. Art is often a synonym for fine art, as employed in the term "art gallery".
Performing arts include the dance, music, opera, drama, magic, Spoken word, circus arts and musicals.
Artists who participate in performing arts in front of an audience are called performers, including actors, comedians, dancers, magicians, musicians, and singers. Performing arts are also supported by workers in related fields, such as songwriting and stagecraft.
Performers often adapt their appearance, such as with costumes and stage makeup.

Art is form and content.
"Art is form and content" means: All art consists of these two things.
The elements of art,
the principles of design and
the actual, physical materials that the artist has used.
Form, in this context, is concrete and fairly easily described--no matter which piece of art is under scrutiny.
