Art is an expression of individual's way of looking at object or thought and producing the work through the medium that they are working.
Craft is something you put together that people can recognize and they are mostly useful things.

Crafted items are usually utilitarian by design and art items are for viewing and decorative pleasure. However, the artist and his/her audience are truly the only judge of whether an item should fall into one category or another.
Normajean Brevik

Art is an expression of emotions, not usually planned.
Crafts are an expression of art that result in a tangible outcome.

Craft is an art that you have perfected.

Craft is done to create something you can touch, art is done to create something you can feel emotionally.
