How craft is different from fine art

The line between craft and fine art is thin.  However, there is a clear distinction.  For example, this flag made of rice was probably made on a mass production, whereas a flag that may have been created in a lithograph was made once, then mass produced.  Craft is even more different as not much talent is needed for it as any first-grader can probably make a hand print turkey then color it in.  A drawing, on the other hand, takes detail and precision which only a few people have both qualities.  This attention to detail and precision is what separates these two art forms.
