Art is of many forms and whatever form it may be, it brings beauty and refinement to the house if placed rightly.

Arts are broadly categorized into two types, visual art and performing art. In this article we focus and elaborate more on visual art. Some of the important sub categories of visual art are:

Painting is an art of using colors on a surface to bring a shape of an object or a place or a person. The surface can either be a paper, wood, glass etc. And paints like water, acrylic, oil etc.

Depending on the style and method paintings are classified into many types like abstract painting, surrealism, impressionism, cubism, etc. These will be discussed in detail in my future articles.

Drawing is the most common form of visual art in the world. Drawing is similar to painting, but the materials used are different in drawing. Pencils, crayons, pens, etc are used in the drawing. Surface can be anything, but more commonly paper is used as a surface in drawing.

Drawing helps to describe something, present something in pictorial form or give a shape to a thought.

The art of producing an image on a special made paper by using a camera is called photography. Photography is divided into many types based on the things that photographer captured in camera like wildlife photography, food photography, etc.

Sculptures are very interesting kind of visual art. The process of developing a three dimensional object by using materials like wood, clay, stone, metal, etc is called a sculpture making. It can be of any size and may represent a person or an object or any shape.

Antiques are objects that are more than 100 years old. They overcome different climatic conditions and wear and tear of many people. They are popular because of their quality, rarity and the aesthetic essence it carries since several years.

Mosiac is an art work which is created by assembling small pieces of glasses or stones to make a shape or pattern. This takes a lot of time and need creative thinking to arrange small pieces to create a pattern.
