Hey, ignore people who tell you things you make "aren't art". It's gatekeeping

Did you wish to express an idea or emotion? Did you take a transformative action in the process? Congratulations! You made An Art!

We can all decide if we like it or not. We can try to figure out if it's Good. We can debate whether it belongs in galleries and museums. But it is most definitely art.

"But Cal, by that definition, almost anything is art!" YES EXACTLY

Barring extreme cases, every single human creates art in their life. Lots of art. It's one of the great and amazing things about humanity

To take someone's expression of that awesome trait and say "that's not art" is to deny them a piece of humanity, and I will fight you
