  2. Hi there,
    I just finished GCSE art and am now about to start a level art . GCSE art is really fun if you love art, you experiment with lots of different types of materials such as paint, pastel, etching, lino, charcoal etc. The format of the course is basically researching artists relates to a theme given at the beginning of the year, doing a bit of analysis of their work and small studies of it, then experimenting with their techniques in your own responses. You then finish the year by completing a final piece which showcases all of the skills you picked up. You do this once in year 10 then twice in year 11 as one is your exam which for me was 10 hours.

    Art is quite a time-consuming subject. I spent every morning in art and many of my lunch times but tbh, I didn't mind because I love art ! There are times when you feel stressed because you think there is too much to do along with your other subjects, but with good time management you will be fine !

    Here are a few tips:
    ALWAYS complete your work on time ! One day you might tell yourself meh one drawing left - I'll get away with it. You might not get a detention but once you decide to not complete your work, you do it again and again until you have too much work too catch up on. There were people in my year who had only done 20% of the work and so for 2 months they stayed till like 6 to get as much as done as possible!

    Use a variety of materials. If your whole book is work done in paint, you will lose easy marks.

    Remember the importance of annotations. No matter how good you are at art, if your annotations aren't good enough you will never get higher than a b or a. You need to be really analytical and critical of your own work.

    Finally, if your in the process of drawing something and you dont like it at that point, don't throw it! You will waste valuable time trying to achieve perfection, art gcse is not about perfection all the time- you need quantity AND sufficient quality.

    If you have any questions about anything or more about my experience, ask!

  3. Hi,

    Thank you for your comment

    Yeah I would love if you could tell me a bit about the art work you produced as I'm not too confident on whether my art work is going to produce a high grade.
