Oh, I definitely think there's a bit of an artistic vibe going on, but I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder...
After some thinking, I tend to believe it is not really art, just skillfulness in sticking matches together. If he showed me how to make a durable supporting construction, I suppose I would be able to make sth on my own too, if I had enough patience. True art to me is painting - my pics look like primary school kid`s and if all major world artists instructed me how to paint, I would still be a loser in it.

You would be surprised at what you can actually learn technique wise, but yes, there has to be talent there to be a great painter. Painting is one of my loves, a visit to an art gallery for me is wonderful. I spent many years painting and drawing but have little time for it these days. I'm selective about what I like though, I have no time for abstract art. I like paintings that show true talent, paintings by the 'Old Masters' for example.

Yes, I can imagine. However, it might be enough in amateur painting, just for yourself and your own privagte gallery in the bedroom. If we mean professional art with commercial goals, then the competition is really high and one needs to have talent beside technique to be recognised and appreciated.
