What is art?

What do you think art is?  I think art is telling us all a story, don’t you think?

I think art tells us different things about different cultures. For example a New Zealand piece of art could be a painting of a koru. Art from Australia could be a dot painting.

In my opinion art is not all about staying still. Art could be a play with lots of people moving around. Or it could be a dance.

Art could also be about scribbles and dots and all kinds of colours. Like in a book called Dot. A boy thinks he can’t draw but he draws a dot and then it ends up in an art gallery.

Art can tell lots of stories in lots of ways. What story would you tell?
