The damage bonus for Throwing Art only applies to purpose-built throwing weapons and doesn't "stack" with the damage bonus for Weapon Master. Neither bonus improves the damage listed for improvised weapons in the Basic Set. Martial artists with Throwing Art may find this expanded list of improvised weapons helpful:

("airplane"), sewing needle*, straightened paperclip*, or 1" finishing nail*.
