Brief Response

The video we were asked to watch this week reminded me of conversations we had in my high school art history class about art vs. craft. Since my high school days, my position has been that, if there is artistic intent (meaning a desire to express a specific thought/emotion has shaped the work), then it is art. It doesn’t matter to me if it is nail art, basket weaving, or paper making – it can all be art, if it is approached with an artistic intent.

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I tend to agree with you–so much of it is about intent.
