Art Isn’t Free. Can We Stop Pretending it is?

The problem with your approach to art is that you now need to define what art is and who should be considered an artist. Anything outside that definition can no longer be considered as art. If I spill paint on a piece of paper, it could be an accident. If I frame it and call it art is it really art? Or do I only get to call something art if I struggled? I think that’s quite an arrogant assumption. Art is often a reaction against established rules so why establish rules to define art? That makes it hard to compare artists with experts like doctors or scientists. A surgeon can’t practice without the years of education and practical experience. Or are you saying that you can’t be an artist without education?
