What is an ART file?

Files that contain the .art file extension are created by a variety of different drawing applications. The ART files that are used by these software programs usually contain vector graphics that are created using points, lines and vertices to draw the image.

The ART file format is also used by a number of different clipart software applications. Popular applications that use the .art file extension for clipart files include Canon Crayola, Bernina Artista, Xara and Adobe Illustrator.

The Alphacam router tool also uses the .art file suffix. These ART files contain compressed archive files that are created by the utility.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
