You should not limit yourself to identifying art forms as paintings, sculptures, music, sketches, or digital designs among others. There are more varieties that you may even take interest to.

As defined by Edgar Degas, a famous French artist well-known for his depiction of dancers, art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

Calligraphy. Not all may be aware, but writing letter is also an art. When you write texts with visual appeal, it could be deemed as art. This creative form has an unexpectedly high commercial value. People who are experts in the field took months or even years to master the styles and alphabets of calligraphy.

Jewelry Design. This may be accepted as a job solely, but it is also considered an art. The work involves designing wood, plastic, and metals alongside precious gems.  The process is intricate and requires an eye for detail.

Pottery. You may only see the results of this art at home as decors, but since ancient times, it is a common way of expressing one’s ideas.

Manicure and Pedicure Design. This may be new to others but from 5,000 to 3,000 B.C., women in ancient Egypt have been painting their nails with henna. Furthermore, in 600 B.C, the royalties of Zhou Dynasty used gold and silver dust nail art to portray status.

Weaving. The art of weaving began as early as Stone Age. Even if you consider your rugs and tapestries optional accents at home, these are also products of art.

Many people have focused more on art as being drawn or digitally produced from shapes, lines, and texts. They tend to forget that art could also be produced in other means. In actuality, the chair you are sitting in is actually a result of creativity.

Wassily Kandinsky, an art theorist and painter from Russia known for his abstract works, once said that there is no must in art because art is free.
