Plastic arts[edit]

The phrase "plastic arts" (used in the lead) is something of an archaic term, although I gather it is still used in some contexts. The main reason this term is rarely used nowadays is that "plastic" now typically refers to synthetic plastic, thus making the term "plastic arts" confusing. Would it be possible to use a different phrase here, or list the specific art mediums to avoid the confusion? Maybe we could just say "the various arts". Thoughts?

Since plastic arts are a subset of visual arts, I changed it to just say "visual arts". This should make it less redundant and less confusing. Kaldari (talk) 09:32, 19 December 2011 (UTC)
