    Default Artisans who actually ARE Artists?

    Okay, so SPs go by the Artisan group. I have met some actors, writers, photographers, etc. in real life who are SPs, so I just have this strange curiosity: how many of you consider yourself artists in some form? And what kind of artist are you?

    Just wondering.

    ...I design and build furniture and restore fine antiques. More "artisan" than Artist I suppose. I also instruct an art foundations course at a nearby university.

    I like working with all types of media. Not sure what kind of artist I am. I like alittle of everything. Haha.
    Oil pastels, paint, pencil, crayon... glitter... yeah.

    I did pottery once in art class and it was nice for the moment, but... I wouldn't do it as a profession. I liked doing the glazing part though. Haha. Yay design? XD

    I'm also trying some design for clothes and graphics. Also practicing some photography and photo manipulation. Trying to relearn guitar. It's all fun stuff. (:

    It's so hard picking a major in the arts area now that I think about it. Which reminds me that I gotta get down to that. Dang. :/

    Some of my works:

    aoi from ayabie
    height is 22inch, forgot the width... done in colored pencil, glitter, marker for eyes

    uruha from gazette
    pencil

    hips and spine

    just picked
    taken in the backyard. edited with paintshop.

    thinking of you
    did the same thing here as ai did with above.
    model: me.
    did this for a special someone. (:

    Another note, I don't really like doing abstract. Haha. I like doing realistic stuff... I blame my Se, I guess. XD

    I'm working with watercolour paint atm also. So much fun!! I LOVE ART. :'D

    Yeah, I like to create things and I like to improvise in all areas of life, so yes I do consider myself an artist. I have written a ton of poems/song lyrics, done acting, writing and directing for stage plays, created lots of audio projects like radio shows, audiobooks, and montages, as well as original songs on computer programs. Heck, I think most of my posts on forums are works of art. Conversations are performance pieces, most of them improvisational, and I get lots of opportunities in both real life and online to use my talents of listening and ad-libbing responses based on the pieces I am given to create something entertaining for somebody else or just for myself.

    See this post here for more information about my artistic endeavors over the years.

    Doubtful. I am not that any SP, with the exception of maybe ISFP will consider themselves artists in the fine arts due to the utilitarian pragmatism of this temperament. Most things dealing with art will be practical nature. It has been discussed more than once that the word “Artisan” is generally taken out of context. The definition is:
    Usage: Artisan, Artist, Artificer. An artist is one who is skilled in some one of the fine arts; an artisan is one who exercises any mechanical employment. A portrait painter is an artist; a sign painter is an artisan, although he may have the taste and skill of an artist. The occupation of the former requires a fine taste and delicate manipulation; that of the latter demands only an ordinary degree of contrivance and imitative power. An artificer is one who requires power of contrivance and adaptation in the exercise of his profession. The word suggest neither the idea of mechanical conformity to rule which attaches to the term artisan, nor the ideas of refinement and of peculiar skill which belong to the term artist.
    In the case of the dictionary definition, I would not be artist nor artisan, but artificer. The word can be used quite ambiguously which is why Berens/Nardi turned to the word “Improviser” to describe SP types:
    im•pro•vise

    1. To invent, compose, or perform with little or no preparation.
    2. To play or sing (music) extemporaneously, especially by inventing variations on a melody or creating new melodies in accordance with a set progression of chords.
    3. To make or provide from available materials: improvised a dinner from what I found in the refrigerator.
    4. To invent, compose, or perform something extemporaneously.
    5. To improvise music.
    6. To make do with whatever materials are at hand.

    Totally in the same boat as you...

    I think I'm going to choose a Fine Arts major... just going into 2nd year! probably going into Illustration and Graphic Design industries. I'm learning Photoshop and Illustrator at the moment, and first year I've tried painting with acrylics and guache. I do lots of pencil, charcoal, india ink. Some black and white film photography. I play piano and play around with programs like Reason when I have some spare time.

    My DeviantArt page is herebut this stuff is mostly all over a year old, needs updating!

    I would consider myself creative. More of an artisan than an artist. My work has tended to be artisan in nature. As have my hobbies.
