The word art comes from the era of Middle English. The word is derived from the Latin word 'artem', meaning 'skill' or 'craft'. It also has Indo-European roots. First record of the usage of the word 'Art' in the sense of grammar, logic, arithmetic, geometry, music, astronomy, etc is recorded in 1386. However, the meaning 'skill in creative arts' is first recorded only by 1620, especially with respect to painting, sculpture, etc. The origin of the word is calculated to be c.1225.
