    Re: "A great part of art"

    If I wanted to speak in those terms about something I'd probably say it's an art, not an art form.

    Do native speakers use "arts"?

    "Dancing and singing are arts" Or "Drawings and paintings are arts."

    Re: "A great part of art"

    What word we use depends on several things. Quality for one. If a painting is good enough that somebody would be willing to pay for it it is more likely to be considered a work of art.

    Context is also important.

    It's more of an art than a science.



    P.S. I flunked out of art class. (Not really. I dropped art class for geography.)
