In a broader sense, it also means skill and creative imagination in areas as the literary arts, the performing arts, and the visual arts. It is a skill that provides the artist and the public with an experience of beauty. Arts also deal in the philosophical imagination of individual, or in the group of people. On the other hand, aesthetics is that branch of philosophy concerned with the essence and perception of beauty and ugliness.
It also deals with the question of whether such qualities are objectively present in the things they appear to qualify or whether they exist only in the mind of the individual. Hence, whether objects are perceived by a particular mode, the aesthetic mode, or whether instead the objects have aesthetic qualities.
I. A. Richard claimed that art is a language. He asserted that two types of language exist; the symbolic, which conveys the ideas and information; and the emotive, which expresses, evokes and excites feelings and attitudes (Funk and Wagnall’s Encyclopaedia, 1971).
As quoted by Jalongo and Stamp (1997) stressed that arts are all about connections which can be considered in three forms; the relation of images to language, to thought and to feeling. Further, he added that these connections may be conceptualized as three broad, interrelated areas: arts and craft, includes all works of the visual arts, music and singing and making music as well as responding to music with the body through creative dance; story and enactment include puppetry, story writing, creative dramatics and dramatic play.
Eisner as quoted by Prentice (1995) contended that artistic learning deals with the development of abilities to create art forms, aesthetic perception of understanding of art as a cultural phenomenon. Thus, an understanding of artistic learning requires attending to how people learn to create visual forms, how people see the visual forms in art and in nature, and how understanding of art occurs. Theories about aesthetic are either classical or modern (Funk and Wagnall`s Encyclopaedia, 1971).
The classical theories hold the principles of well known philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus.
Plato on his part believes that the artist`s work is an imitation and an imitation. Aristotle contends that art partly completes what nature cannot bring to finish. Plotinus however, believes that art reveals the form of an object more clearly than experience and raises the soul to contemplation of the universal. It is worthwhile to note that aside from these theories, in the Middle Ages, art was an expression of religion and it was only during the Renaissance in the 15Th and 16Th centuries that art became secular. Modern aesthetic includes ideas of prominent philosophers and educators.
One among them is Immanuel Kant, a German philosopher who maintained that beautiful objects have no specific purpose and that judgements of beauty are universal not personal. Another one is John Dewey an American educator and philosopher who considered aesthetic experience, as enjoyment for its own sake, is complete and self-contained and is terminal, not merely instrumental to other purposes. Sigmund Freud, another significant figure in modern aesthetic theory believes that the value of art lies in aits therapeutic use – a means that enables both the artist and the public to reveal hidden conflicts and tensions.
