Art. How much meaning lies in this simple word?  Art surrounds us everywhere and through the life, but to understand art it is not enough to go to museums, exhibitions and take selfies on the background of monuments, of course we must also turn to books.

The notion of art is extremely broad - it can express itself in very simple things, but at the same time in extremely developed skill in a particular industry. For a long time art was considered like a type of cultural activity that satisfied a person’s need of beauty. However, over time, with the development of the evolution of social and aesthetic norms almost any activity aimed at creating aesthetically expressive forms has become called art. On a global scale art is a special way of knowing and displaying reality, one of the forms of artistic activity, part of a person’s spiritual culture. Everything is much simpler in science - art is the creative activity and result of a work of art.
