Basically, clip art is a picture shape and word art is a simple shape. Iterate over Slide's
shapes and check what 
Shape.getShapeName() returns. Clip art should be Picture objects, word art should be AutoShape

Word art shapes should have special properties that describe the text curvature, etc. For
now you have to examine it 
using low-level accessors. Grab EscherOptRecord and see what's inside. This way you can figure
out what shape it is.
