Why do people make art? How is art made...and what is "art" anyway?
The documentary film The Work of an Artist examines the motives behind making art, and the everyday challenges artists face. The work of an artist is demanding, yet some people choose this path. Is art borne out of an inner necessity? Are people artists by birth? The film seeks to answer these, and other questions.
