Applied arts refer to any form of art applied to design or decoration. This might include industrial, graphic, fashion and interior design. It also might include the decorative arts. Architecture and photography are sometimes included in the implied arts. This is distinct from the fine arts, which are aimed at providing aesthetically pleasing, intellectually stimulating forms of art.

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents.
