re: Is Coding an Art? VIEW POST


Painting requires practiced motor skills, a good sense of how perspective works (so you can either follow it, bend it, or break it in a specific manner), and knowledge of how paint behaves when working with specific brushes, sorts of paint and your canvas.

That's a description of something most people would consider an art. With that I mean to convey that rules, guidelines and requiring certain knowledge isn't at odds with 'art'.


I'm describing (as specific aspect of) painting, which is generally considered an art. That aspect indeed focuses on things most commonly attributed to a craft. As such, craft and art are not mutually exclusive.
