Craft vs Fine art
Many people do not realize that crafts, most of the time are really works of art. Crafters need skill and creativity to create pieces of art just like a painter or sculpture would. Art is extremely opinionated. What may please one persons taste in art may disgrace another's. In my opinion I believe when done sophisticatedly, crafts can be just as valuable as the paintings seen in museums. Art is in the eye or the beholder. Crafts differ from fine art in their place in our world. It is unusual to see crafting in museums just as it is extremely rare to see fine art at say a craft fair. Yet both are forms of art meant to be appreciated and valued to those who find them to satisfy their need of art in life.
