"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, whereas disciplines such as anthropology, sociology and psychology analyze its relationship with humans and generations.
Traditionally, the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery. This conception changed during the Romantic period, when art came to be seen as "a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science". Generally, art is made with the intention of stimulating thoughts and emotions."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art
Sounds great to me, just the word human
should be let out as far as I am concerned for with this definiation, art is not only to be found amongst humans.
It also shows I still remain before the Romantic period ha ha !
Maybe we should start our own defination of Art, since that is the word our forum starts with
