"Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation." -Salvador Dali

Ceramicsdrawingpaintingsculptureprintmakingdesigncraftsphotography,videofilm making and architecture may all be considered forms of visual arts. Many artistic disciplines (performing artsconceptual arttextile arts) involve aspects of the visual arts as well as arts of other types. Also included within the visual arts are the applied arts such as industrial designgraphic designfashion designinterior design and decorative art.

Current usage of the term "visual arts" includes fine art as well as the applied, decorative arts and crafts, but this was not always the case. Before the Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and elsewhere at the turn of the 20th century, the term 'artist' was often restricted to a person working in the fine arts (such as painting, sculpture, or printmaking) and not the handicraft, craft, or applied art media. The distinction was emphasized by artists of the Arts and Crafts Movement, who valued vernacular art forms as much as high forms. At the MP Arts, Inc. studio sessions, all of these forms of visual arts are applied through exciting programs of study and application.
