Art- Cash on the Wall

Art is considered as a strong way of communicating many ideas. An artist is always engaged in an activity related to creating art, practicing the arts, or demonstrating an art. The purpose of art may be to create a sense of beauty and to explore the nature of perception to generate strong emotions.

The term art has many forms like, music, dance, drama, folk art, creative writing, architecture, painting, sculpture, photography and more.
