The fine arts include, but are not limited to: Painting, Poetry, Theatre, Story-Telling, Dance, Sculpting, Drawing, Photography, etc. The line between fine art, art, and trash is oftened blurred, and is very subjective.

Fine arts are domains in which the intent is to display an interpretation of an idea. There is debate about which arts can be considered "fine", and which must be relegated to arts.

The controversy tends to hover about the arts that are produced for mass-consumption, and often with economic goals at the fore: Artisanry, Advertising art, Decoration, Graphic Design, and Illustration. Even movements such as Art Deco met "not fine art" criticism, due to the ability of the mainstream to co-opt the style using cheaper materials.

The movements of Bauhaus, Cubism, Dadaism, Expressionism, Futurism, Impressionism, and Surrealism, however, are widely recognized and, by today's standards, accepted as forms of fine art.
