Art or Craft?
Though both may seem to be considered art, the table, to me, is more of a craft then art. The table can be massed produced and sold to anyone. The painting can be replicated and sold, but the original must stay in one place for people to only see. While, the table is always being created for the public to do as they please with it. Crafts have other purposes, for example, the table can have objects placed on them for display on it, for decoration in a household, used to play games on, place your feet on to rest, and so on.
The painting can only be hung on a wall and looked at. But, what makes art different then crafts is that art can have more value then most crafts. Both are similar in certain ways for instance, they can be hand crafted, both can have the artists signature on it or in the name, and, both use techniques like symmetry, space, texture, perspective, and more. Anyway, though arts and crafts have there similarities, they are two different categories.
