The visual arts are a class of art forms, including painting, sculpture, photography, and others, that focus on the creation of artworks which are primarily visual in nature. The visual arts are distinguished from the performing arts, language arts, culinary arts, and other such classes of artwork.
Visual Arts are printed materials such as illustration, advertising, designs and photography. People who specialize in visual arts often work for magazines, newspapers, corporations, publishers, advertising agencies, or printing and manufacturing companies.
Graphic Design is one the largest branches of the visual arts. Graphic Design jobs include art directors, computer artists, layout artists, and production managers. Graphic designers come up with ideas to meet the visual communication needs of their clients.
