Art Coursework Ideas Gcse Biology

 
  1. I'm currently studying GCSE art, and I've chosen the theme of ' growth and decay.' I'm hoping for a A* by the end of the year. I work hard and put in the effort but I'm struggling for ideas. I'd absolutely love an A* but I'm just not sure how to get there. ive mostly kept with the medium of paint, should I use other mediums? I'm working at a grade B at the minute if that helps.

  2. A lot of marks come down to ideas especially of youre on Edexcel I got an A and CANNOT draw well at all but I had ideas that were unusual and original, lots of different mediums and when things didn't go well I evaluated my work (if on Edexcel it's like 20 marks for literally making a comment on each of your pieces what you like what you could do better what you take from it in order to move on to the next piece)
    My advice really would be don't be afraid to be wacky my final portfolio included painted bubble wrap( really effective actually) tin foil , shoe box 3D painting, t shirt printing, sewing, fabrics, acrylics, chalks, collage, wool, cocktail sticks and even the humble colouring pencil. My ideas and final pieces were always unique and different I played to my strengths which was away from the actual composition side of things. In many ways it's playing to the mark scheme - get hold of one and look at where you can pick up the EASY marks like commenting on your work and developing even the most basic of ideas. And include artists not just the ones that your teacher suggests. Hope that helps a bit

  3. I am also doing a GCSE in art and design at the moment and I am predicted to get an A*. My first project was gardens and I focused on textiles, resulting in creating a detailed dress with bouquets on for the design. My second project was contrast between Native American and Aboriginal art and I used clay media throughout, creating about five sculptures of various heads. The project I'm doing at the moment, and also my final one, is the journeys into fairytale worlds and I am focusing on my painting and drawing skills. It is important to experiment with different types of media throughout your upcoming project to show variation, which if you're doing the AQA qualification, will help you gain marks in the third assessment objective.

    As for ideas, it takes a while to fully understand what you're going to focus on, but talking to friends or art teachers may guide you in the right direction.

    Good luck

These development studies for a double portrait experiment with changes in posture, expression and composition.

Development is about creativity and exploring ideas in different ways.

After your initial response to a stimulus it is important that you don't just keep producing analytical drawings or market research. This isn't development.

Development is about selecting ideas, visual elements, compositions and techniques from this initial work and using them in new ways.

It is important that you don't become too attached to your first idea.

Don't worry if the work you produce seems unresolved and isn't perfect. It is an important part of the creative process to try out new things and to make creative decisions based on what works and what doesn't.

And don't worry if you try something that doesn't work. Showing creativity is more important at this stage. Remember you can refine your work and produce a more finished result for the sustained project in your portfolio and your assignment.
