ARTIST is one who engages in art-making. The Oakland City Council included the following definition of art-making in Resolution No. 68516, an affirmation of "the city’s commitment to the development of affordable, safe, liveable work/live space for artists: "Art-making is the activity of creating objects an expressions of form (inert, organic, or synthetic) primarily for purposes of visual or auditory contemplation. Art-making activities include all creative endeavors in the visual arts, dramatic arts, music, and dance. Art-making is an activity undertaken by an artist or a person studying to become an artist; it is not a hobby activity."
