Some different types of art are animation, architecture, assemblage, calligraphy, ceramics, computer, Christian or religious, conceptual, artistic design, drawing, folk, graffiti, graphic, illuminated manuscript, illustration, mosaic, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, stained glass, tapestry, and video. Subclassifications include chalk, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolors, acrylics, miniature painting, engraving, lithography, screen printing, wood carving, dance, and acting. Line, form, shape, texture, space, value and color are the elements that make up various art forms. These basic components combined with principles of design are the building blocks used by all artists to create within every genre of artistry. A sculptor, for example, uses form, space and texture to depict objects that are three-dimensional. Line and shape are essential for those who bring scenes to life using two-dimensional media.

Value refers to the portrayal of darkness and light using shading and perspective. The thousands of tints and tones in the color spectrum are essential to painters, illustrators and artisans who configure stained glass. Other types of art include wax modeling, ivory carving, bronze casting, relief sculpting, tapestry, video, cave painting, manicure and pedicure design, poster art popular during the French belle epoque and the art nouveau era, and fine art printmaking implemented by artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec and Andy Warhol.

Fine arts, visual arts, plastic arts, performance arts, applied arts and decorative arts are the major classifications of the arts. Several of these classifications have sub-classifications associated with them. When one speaks of "the arts," the fine arts are often assumed. Some of the sub-classifications under fine arts include drawing, painting and sculpturing. People use different media to create these arts. For example, charcoal, crayon, pastel, pencil and chalk are all examples of media that are used to create drawings.

Visual arts includes disciplines like photography, videography and animation. Whereas some types of art stand on their own, visual art is often part of a product, such as a book, magazine or movie.

Plastic arts are more about how objects can be molded than it is about plastic. Clay, stone, plaster, wood and paper all may be used to create plastic arts. Origami, the practice of folding paper into shapes and objects, is an example of this kind of art.

Decorative arts refers to jewelry, ceramics and other items that are embellished by ornaments and other designs. Performance arts are most evident in the theater. Ballets, operas and plays are all part of this classification. Applied arts involve a person adding design elements to functional objects. Computer art and interior design are examples.
