You're right - there are no rules.  I was just reporting the guidelines we use at our museum.

creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. art is knowing which ones to keep

I can't find it back, but this is what I read in another thread:
He who uses his hands is a workman.
He who uses his hands and his brain is a craftsman.
He who uses his hands, brain and heart is an artist.

I am artistic, but not an artist.  Does that make sense?

It makes sense to me.  Folks tell me I'm an artist, but often when they say it I think they just mean I created something beautiful.  It would be great if my efforts eventually got to the art level, but physical ability just isn't the only thing. 

I've made a few things that I would consider art, (some on the Magna-Doodle our family gave us after seeing how much I liked their two year-old's toy...), but I don't see the majority of my work as art. Yet.   Smiley

I have read this a couple of times and each time more and more think that this means that artists are in a way more evolved than crafters, I don't agree that crafters don't use their hearts in their work. Okay, well maybe since it is talking about the male sex that is true, so for females it would read She who uses her hands, brains, and heart can be a worker, a crafter or an artist.  Smiley Not trying to male bash, just some humor. Perhaps I am reading too much into this quote and should just let it go.
