Question of the week: what is art?

Our teacher (Miss Drummonds) presented a famous painting by Jackson Pollock; we thought that it wasn’t ‘real’ art because it didn’t fit our idea of what art should be.

However, after unpicking misconceptions, we realised that the concept of art isn’t so black and white.

Here are some of our thoughts:

“I think that the painting is good, therefore it is art.” – Ridwan

“I think that art is expressing what’s in your imagination – but it’s really about making money.” – Musab

“If you do something accidentally, it isn’t art because you didn’t intend to do it.”  – Mark
