Art is defined as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing work to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional. Baseball, for example, is the a sport that involves skills, creativity, and imagination, and it produces work (matches) that are greatly appreciated for their competitive nature and teamwork spirit, therefore it is a form of art. Thus sports are art forms.
1. The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture,...: "the art of the Renaissance"
2. Works produced by such skill and imagination.
Sport is a group of works(moves), by skill, and imagination(what moves to do).
Sport is art.
Everything is art. Everything ever designed, made or even coughed up. Art is every where, and to say something isn't art, is like denying someones right. Even if it isn't pretty or functional it is art. It takes creativity to do anything as well. I am not biased, in fact I hate sports with a passion, but it is clear enough to understand that everything and anything is art and music.
As a person who is an artist and an athlete, i can tell you very much that sports are just as much of a form of an art. When you are our on that field or court you have to put everything you have into the game just as much of art. You have to think of solutions to the problems. The athlete might not think of it as a form of art because they can not see the beauty of it when they are actually creating it. They play on their canvas, the utensil the artist uses are the players,and in order to have the art piece they must have technique.
Sports is a form of art because you need hand and eye coordination which you get from art when I say art I do not mean the old colour pencil and paper art I mean art as in dance,music,etc. Thus sports is an art because you use hand and eye coordination
You have several sports where success is determined by the application of aesthetic criteria to performance. For example Gymnastics, Surf, Diving, etc. Goals or touchdowns are viewed and reviewed worldwide because of the creativity and excellence of individuals or teams; and when a soccer player dribbles 5 players and scores a goal considered wonderful, then there is a aesthetic measurement by the receptors of this creative motion. Sport actions have aesthetic value, just like Dance, just like a Painting, just like Cinema.
Both a lacrosse player and a painter, looking at it both art and athletics have a set of rules such as some things have to be there in a painting to be called a surrealism piece or a add on. Just like in sports there are specific rules to make it the game it is. My paint bush is my tool to make a master piece and my body is the tool to make a master piece on the field
I say art because it is bound by the same things art is:
The Canvas is the field of play
The brush are the Players themselves
The technique allows the picture be painted
A sweetly placed ball to thread through two fielders towards the boundary off of one of the most skilled bowlers in the world.
The amount of time and work put into sports should be a work of art on its own, but if you want real example then look closely at games. In football, not everyone can appreciate the beauty of a catch or a thrown, not everyone can see how how a goal in soccer can be breath taking. As a runner, not many people appreciate how stunning another runner's form can be, or how something as aggressive as wrestling can have grace. It can be expressing feelings because well athletes put their whole heart into what they do.
Sports are presented to an audience the same way arts are.
Not everyone will perceive a pass in a football match the same way not everyone will perceive a curve on a painting. It doesn't mean they can't be considered artistic.
They both require human skills and talents.
Sports may be the most popular forms of arts.
Art is about creativity and the idea that nothing can tell you where go or what to do; yout imagination is the only thing that limits you. Sports are about abiding by a set of strict rules; any deviation from these make the game unenjoyable for everyone. There is no creativity involved at all, it is just physical activity.
Sports are a physical activity. Unless it's something that's mainly used for artistic purposes (Dancing), then it's just a sport. I made the argument that almost everything is a sport a while back, but I'm not going to make the argument that almost everything is an art. Well they are, but sports aren't one of them. If we start classifying football as art, then what else will be classified as something totally wrong? Painting as a sport? Jogging as a hobby? Skim milk as a dairy product?
Art is a limitless creative expression of our life experiences. Sports have rules and an ultimate goal, such as achieving a particular outcome and/or out-doing your opponent. Sports are competitive whereas art is reflective. Art is also more subjective and open to interpretation. It's personal and can take many forms; it also does not require physical prowess.
Many athletic activities have artistic elements, as well as many art forms have athletic elements.
The purpose of Sport is to engage in an activity with the purpose of crowning a winner. Rules are established and implemented to ensure that the competitors are participating in a level field, thus restricting their freedom to create and be artful. Brackets and seasons are clearly defined and even tie breakers are necessary to ensure there is a winner. The very nature of selecting a fair winner confines the activity, limits expression and changes the principal reason for engaging in the activity to begin with.
This is why, scoring figure skating, or deciding on an "award winner movie" is often met with the problem of subjective scoring, If it is really art then the final score is made by each and every person that experiences it. Sport needs clear and non-subjective goals like time keeping, score keeping, etc. Movies for example are often ranked as to how much money they made in the box office, which of course gives a quantifiable number to be used as a tie breaker, but is a poor predictor of the quality of the movie.
Funny, engaging in a debate website that has on top a 74% vs 26% score card that quantifies the answer to this question is actually not very "artistic" and VERY "sporting".
Football, basketball, rugby, cricket have a set of rules and a very specific goal that needs to be reached. Typically that goal is to score more points than the opponent. That's the main point, to out do your opponent. Skill, planning, preparation,execution are needed.
Art(s) however are created to express, and interpret ideas, through visual, auditory, experience ect.
You do not create anything, you do not express yourself, you just play. It's an activity, because art is all about expressing yourself, individualism, creativity, and ideas. Sports has none of that. You just follow the rules and that's it, nothing else that involves creativity or imagination unlike art, music, dance, drama, and literature.
Soccer is art because God made it art ,idiots... Cant u see? And on the definiton that this page gave it clearly states that art is skills and soccer is all about skills. By the way my favorite soccer team is Barcelona becuase Messi is badass at soccer just saying.
Peanuts are art. A a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a r r r r r r r r r r r rr r t t t tt t tt tt t tttt tt t
There's one part of sports that make it art and that's how it's created. Everything else just lacks the qualities of art. I chose no because sports doesnt have a purpose for its own expression. Because it's non-living and has no feelings and doesnt represent the creator's feelings. It's just a set of rules.
Just like what every one said it's using your imagination and your creativity, is what makes it art. Sports you have to abide by rules, there are no creativity and imagination in sports. For example playing football, what is creative about throwing a ball and tackling people. I have played football, soccer, basketball, and baseball growing up. Have to admit it is fun to play but nothing about it is art. It offends me that the term is being used to loosely, i am a fellow artist. If you call sports a art form then call playing video games an art, not making but playing.
