Artists... how do you define artist? Do you have to be practicing? Are there some things that don't qualify as art? What kinds of creativity do you think are outside the realm of art? Sound off.

To me an artist is someone who creates something beautiful or meaningful (to them) in one form or another (it could be dancing, writing, painting, sculpting etc the possiblities are endless) from their core being, their mind, body and soul....I also think that we are all artists, its just that some ppl choose to not venture into the world of being creative for lack of a better way of putting it... I am an artist....and even though some ppl or all for that matter may not like my work be it writing, drawing, dancing or painting I LOVE IT..to me it speaks volumes and thats all that matters IMO
