Mark-making is the process of applying pencil to paper.
I would broaden this to include applying anything to anything! (scratching marks in plaster, using pen and ink, paint on canvas, anything that leaves a mark on the page could be considered mark making that's what is so nice about it:o)

Why do they call some things art when its just scribbles and marks and some other stuff that's kinda dumb Then they sell it for a million dollars or something It makes no sense?

I completely agree, but neither of us would be considered to be appreciative of fine art. Answer I agree with you as well, but 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder.' Over 20 years ago two young men played a joke (not thinking it would go anywhere in the art world) and got chickens, dipped their feet in paint and let them run across the canvas. They framed the canvas and lo and behold it ended up in an art museum and that's when these two young men dropped the bomb! It was an embarrassment to the art world. It's an individuals choice to decide what they feel art is. Although they may look at modern art and see this and that in the painting that's half the fun. 10 people in one room could get different vibes off the painting. Then there are the so-called art lovers who feel if it's weird it's got to be great. I had a friend that had a painting that had 4 lines, a couple of dots on it and it was suppose to represent the universe. Excuse me! LOL Of course I didn't tell my friend what I thought of their art and that I felt they had been royally shafted paying some $45,000 for this mess. Another answer: What art I enjoy is importatnt only to me. What you enjoy is up to you. When you say (in your question) 'they sell it for...'. They can't sell it if nobody enjoys it. The person who buys a piece of art has found something in it which is worth the price. If you do not like it is of no consequence.

What makes the art Gothic art?

Gothic art was started around 1140CE in the french province known as L'Ile-de-France (Paris and vicinity) and grew to influence the rest of norther Europe. The most influential period in Gothic art was from 1150-1250 in a period known as the Age of the Great Cathedrals. Gothic style is characterized by luminosity and the filtration of light through stained glass in cathedrals as well as elaborate sculptural decorations on facades and transept portals. Gothic sculpture mean to represent scenes from the Old and New testament as well as catholic customs and traditions. During the influence of the Gothic style we see a rise in the Cult of the Virgin throughout northeastern European cathedrals. In gothic architecture we see a growing emphasis on a light almost skeletal construction of walls pierced by hundreds of brightly coloured stained glass windows. We see an emphasized verticality and the use of clerestory levels, quadripartite vaults, and flying buttresses. Examples of Early French Gothic cathedrals are: The Abbey Church of Saint-Denis, France Notre-Dame, Chartres, France Notre-Dame, Laon, France Notre-Dame, Paris, France Notre-Dame, Amiens, France Notre-Dame, Reims, France Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France Saint-Urbain, Troyes, Belgium
