Craft vs. Fine Art
As we discussed in class, there is a clear distinction between craft and fine art. Crafts can generally be easily replicated and mass produced, allowing many people to have a piece of the art. Fine art is usually intended to be an original, having only one in existence. However, both require the same type of creativity and thought process. Craft and fine art are extremely similar in how they are created but differ in how they are presented. Crafts are usually treated as something less important than fine art because they are easy to obtain and do not usually cost much. I don't think that is really a fair distinction because they both posses someone's creativity and idea.
