What is the full meaning of arts?

The arts are subjects that you study at school and that have some artistic or social aspect to them, rather than being purely practical or work-related. If you specialize in English and specialize in music, you are studying arts. Art can have a literal and very concrete meaning the more representative a work of art is, the easier it will be to attribute meaning to it. If you look at a piece of art and you don't feel anything, all it means is that that particular piece of art isn't for you.
