People could (and do) argue endlessly about the differences between fine art and crafts. The line between the two can be extremely blurry. One possible differentiator: You could define fine art as being art that doesn’t serve any other practical function than being aesthetically pleasing or interesting. Most people would agree that painting, drawing and sculpture would all be considered fine art. Some people would also agree that collage art, photography and digital art are all fine art too.
