Violet thought about the times Miss Howard had talked to her about the Dark Arts, then raised her hand.

"As I understand it, the Dark Arts can be any kind of magic--curses, potions, charming dark objects--which is mainly intended to hurt someone. But...there are a lot of spells that can do that, but aren't technically considered dark magic. And some dark spells could possibly be used for helpful purposes. And ..." she paused a moment, thinking of her uncles and their friends--"I don't know a lot about it yet, but it seems to me that a lot of people consider the Dark Arts to be bad spells cast by people they don't like, but when they do similar things, they don't call it 'Dark'."
