The Grade 11 Visual Art group has been exploring the ‘ism’s’ in Visual Art.

Many very interesting techniques explored in the process of each artwork.

So what is Art and what is an ‘Ism’?

Rene Magritte, Mr Magritte

I love your ism, but is it Art?

I’ll eat your black bowler hat

if that is Art?

Salvador Dali, I adore Dali!

I love his ‘ism’ , but is it Art?

It’s metaphysically superb

But is it Art?

Romanticism, minimalism, disillusionism,

oh, oh, oh

is it Art

supreme-tism, exoticism


Oh is it Art or is it an ‘ism?

                          – Niki Daly 1984
