The deities of art are patrons of those who employ aesthetics into their works, seek to create the beautiful or simply enjoy art created by others.

They are the composers of songs known worldwide and plays so powerful that they drive those who watch them insane. They are the creators of paintings and sculptures that draw crowds and the person who makes a pilgrimage to every museum they can find. The emotion and feeling created and experienced through art is the prime drive for a follower of these deities.
