What is your opinion: How can you tell, or what IS, the difference between "real art" and "crafts"?

    Great answer--"In the eye of the beholder". I like that!

    Very good answer! Couldn't have said it better myself (my dad does fine art, my sis and I used to do performing arts--piano). If it's unique and evokes a response from the viewer, it's art. Else, if repeatable, a craft. A fine line in many cases!

    Great quote! Thanks, Winston Smith. I disagree slightly with St. Francis, however, because (for example) anyone who has built a house for themselves put their heart into it, too, but the resulting house isn't necessarily art: it's "just" a home.

    I see real

    art as something drawn and painted. I see a craft as something like a sculpture or a design, put together out of any material.
