Creative Strategies with Matt Shadetek
What makes an artist different from a craftsperson? To put it simply: the artist chooses, the craftsperson executes. Think of the difference between a carpenter and an architect. The architect designs what’s going to be built, and the carpenter executes it. The point is not to diminish the value of craftsmen, but instead to use this distinction to understand the artist’s role. Decision making is at the core of what makes an artist an artist.
