Abstract: 
This article argues that aesthetic conduct requires moral appraisal. Aesthetic conduct is bifurcated into the production of art works and the response to art works. In the production of art works it is argued that a further bifurcation includes both the method of production and the content of the art work. Taking the secondary school setting, it is suggested that violence in art works may be motivated from a number of sources, including mental imbalance. This has implications for the art teacher. The nature of violent images is examined within a general explication of the notion of violence. A number of disturbing examples are illustrated and discussed. The notion of relative values in art is raised and dismissed.
