What is Art?

A little while ago I was in a situation where I was introduced as an ‘artist’. It triggered the onset of impostor syndrome and I completely freaked out. So I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t see myself as an artist. I paid zero attention during art class at school. I mean, I don’t even know how to define art. When my daughter asks, ‘What’s art Dad?’, I don’t know where to start - how does a thing even earn that label?
