This category and its content give you an insight in, whatis probably one of the oldest human enterprises, a beautiful and intriguingworld of art.

Since the first cave dwellers depicted scenes from everydaylife and made roughly shaped statues, to this day, art has been evolving mainlybecause people had the urge to express themselves in a certain creative andproductive way.

The result of that process, regardless of the media used inrealization, is what we today perceive as art. Now, as broad term as art is, itdemands a certain categorization, in order for us to be able to grasp theconcepts and ideas it offers. Dependingon the medium, time period, or even a stream of thought at the time of making,a certain piece of art belongs to a specific category.

The long established categories include music, theatre,literature, painting, sculpturing, architecture, dancing and recently two morewere added to this traditional classification and they are the art of film andcomics.

The following sub division of each category is defined bythe term genre. Each individual category contains, or consists of, if you will,of a number of genres.

The art category on Documentary Tube consists of all of theabove mentioned categories along with their genres and even more, because artitself is constantly evolving and someone is always there to document it.
