Can anyone be an artist/create art? Why not?

Imagine
that you are in a debate with someone who asserts that, just as beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, art is whatever the spectator thinks it
is; there are no rules, no criteria, no universal boundaries delineating
what is and what is not art, who is and who is not an artist. If
something expresses or creates an aesthetic or emotional response, it is
art.

Your task is to take the other side of the debate: How would you respond to and rebut this view? In the first chapter of Living with Art,
Getlein lists six roles that artists fulfill; these may help you in
coming up with your response. Come up with points and specific examples
of art works to support of the other side of the debate, which is
that not just anything can be art, not just anyone can be an artist:
There are established and justifiable criteria to confer that status
upon objects and individuals.
