Art Forms

Art comes in many forms, as listed below. Art form is the design, shape and effect a work of art is expressed in. Though some cave paintings and petroglyphs date back some 20,000 years, the foundation for most art forms can be traced to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, India, China, Greece, Rome, as well as Inca, Maya, and Olmec. However the computer has recently introduced whole new art forms: digital art, digitaPainting, multimedia and interactive.

Art, whatever its form, is used to express the artist's creativity, to engage the audience's aesthetic sensibilities, to direct the audience towards consideration of finer things in life, to convey reality as viewed by the artist, or to convey and reveal great truths. Some say art is a reflection of a society's culture. We say art is an expression within an individual, that must be defined, regardless of praise, monetary benefit or reward—or form.
