    the seven arts are

    architecture

    music

    dance

    sculpture

    painting

    literature (poetry)

    the cinema is referred as The 7th art cause of several reasons.. but mainly cause its a combination of all of the above.. you use architecture to build sets, music to follow the scenes, literature for script, dance for the movements, painting or photography for the image on the frame and sculpture for the different tools used with the architecture to recreate reality..

    painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, ceramics, graphic design....I don't know...thats a pretty good guess. You might replace graphic design/computer stuff with something else, crafts or something. I've actually never heard of this that you are referring to, but interesting nonetheless.
