Here's our current list of art categories.
Don't worry if your work doesn't fit exactly into one of these. You'll be able to describe what you do in more detail on your profile page. And artists working in multiple disciplines can choose all that apply during the profile setup.
There's also a sub-category of "Other" for each main category. If you'd like to request a new category so you can avoid using Other, then let us know via the Contact page.
