Jackson6612What is an imaginative art?
It's hard to say. I don't believe there are any unimaginative arts, so I'm not sure why the word "imaginative" was added there.

Maybe it was to exclude practitioners of the more practical arts like "the art of carpentry", "the art of sewing", "the art of gardening", or "the art of baking", where these often refer to those with specialized skills in the techniques of a certain profession, as opposed to such types of artists as playwrights, sculptors, and composers, where imagination is often of primary importance in the creation of new artistic works (even though technique is also necessary).

Thank you, CJ. Your explanation explains its well.
Hi,
Imaginative art ---- It is called creativeness. Thinking creatively to do a particular thing in any area of interest.
