Art is a diverse range of human activity, and resulting product, that involves creative or imaginative talent expressive of technical proficiency, beauty, emotional power, or conceptual ideas.

There is no generally agreed definition of what constitutes art, and its interpretation has varied greatly throughout history and across cultures. In the Western tradition, the three classical branches of visual art are painting, sculpture, and architecture. Theatre, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature, music, film and other media such as interactive media, are included in a broader definition of the arts.

From the perspective of art history, artistic works have existed almost as long as humanity: from early prehistoric art to contemporary art; however, some theorists believe that the typical term "artistic works" does not fit well outside of modern Western societies. An early meaning of the definition of art is closely related to the older Latin meaning, which can be roughly translated as "skill" or "craft," as associated with words such as "artisan." English words derived from this meaning include artifact, artificial, artifice, medical art, and military art. However, there are many other colloquial uses of the word, all of which have some relation to its etymology.
