My son needed to submit all his art work for his GCSE yesterday.
This is what you need to do if you are taking Art in secondary school.
- Still life
- Sea life
starting with simple objects and move on to painting your own design. Modern classic and pop art study
He won the National Student Award for this piece although he now finds it immature.
It was displayed in the gallery in London and we went to see it last summer.
Pencil, ink, water colour. Study on modern artists.
I don’t know how many portraits he produced, but I know he enjoyed doing them. First, he was told to draw his face(left) and also had a go at someone else’s. He recommends to choose someone young, otherwise, you will end up running out of time like this.
He also drew some of his favorite people. I wonder if you recognize them.
He needed to arrange all his work on large paper with his articles on each artist. He had about 10 of these collections. He stayed up until 2 am on Thursday.
The large amount of work was so heavy and his art folder was ripping at the sides, threatening to spill its content all over the wet pavement on the way to school.
So I gave him a lift.
Art GCSE is not for the faint hearted.
