My art teacher saw me drawing a very unrealistic picture in class and told me that what I was doing was not considered art because it wasn't "realistic" or "classic" so to say. I tried to tell her that was not true, that my picture was art. Not all art has to be realistic. Art can be anything. Art is a form of expression, a way for people to say what they feel without words. Not everyone feels realsim, so why should it only be art if it's real?

Sculpture, performance art, installations, etcetera do not have literal frames.

Art is anything that has a frame.

Art is anything that imitates life, abstract or realistic. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

I had an art teacher who thought that every picture had to be filled to the brim with details, so I ended up painting over finished paintings and they turned out terrible.
