Part of the Leisure Studies in a Global Era book series (LSGE)


This chapter looks into the playful moments and their consequences as experienced in fine arts and entertainment arts. The arts covered here are those of the stage, which are music, drama, and dance and those of the studio, which are painting, literature, and the making and tinkering hobbies. Both types are widely produced the world over, with fine and entertainment arts being the more prevalent. During their creative moments, we find augmentative play in full swing.
