I just want to send a few questions out there and want to know what you think. Is there a fine line between art (as in fine art) and craft (as in hobby crafts)? What makes something a craft project and not art? Can a craft project ever be considered fine art? If so, who decides?
I always struggle with those questions. I have read alot on the subject, but all that just made me more confused and made me realize that there is no one answer. When an artist considered her/his work a hobby craft, a museum might consider it the best art they have ever seen and it is now worth $500,ooo. Is it the actual art, the material used, or the level of skill, amount of experience, or education of the artist that makes the difference?
