YouTube Question Channel Category 'Entertainment'

Hi, I am a visual artist and have been uploading all videos to date under the category 'Entertainment'. I really don't consider this category a very good fit, nevertheless it is the best of those that are available and I also selected this category when I created my channel. The issue I have is that Entertainment does not suit as a parent category for Visual Arts, the term itself seems so broad as to be little use as any kind of filter. I think it would be good if YouTube could really Visual Arts as a top level category to balance with other major categories such as Music.

From a quick search I believe the Category usage is limited for tubers but is nevertheless used in certain background searches as well as having implications for monetisation. Can anyone advise how other visual artists are handling this please?

Regards

I know artist channels set their video's category under Howto & Style. Though I suppose their work is more focused on how to draw better :thinking:

Thanks. I did consider that too as I intend to create a playlist about material and techniques, so will use this category for those videos.
