What is art?

Well then, here we go. I’ve never been able to draw any thing and consequently have very little interest in art. However, I do admire people who can draw and always have. The funny thing is that I have also seen great masterpieces which I think my 5 month old baby might have have done a better job with? How could this be? I guess it boils down to taste?

So then what exactly is art? Lately, I have been taken some photographs and enjoyed doing this. But does this make me an artist?

    Difficult question. It reminds me of Who came first? The Art? or The Artist?

    Art is a passion that from those who collect, create, or simply admire art. Art, in and of itself, is not easy to explain. One does not have to be an artist to appreciate art.

    Art is not limited to those who draw, paint, or photograph. Art can be found in great literature, architecture, engineering, farming, and even house cleaning, among other things. Art is driven passion that coordinates the mind’s eye with hand and heart.
