Ugh I have a hate/dislike relationship with Art. Seems to take up all my time and Art teachers act like all other lessons don't matter. --.-- Can't wait to get it over and done with 🎉🎉

ITS OVER THANK THE LORDDDD

I despise planning and up until now I haven’t done any for my pieces. Now I’m going to have to.
Art GCSE is honestly not for me and I’ll be glad when it’s over. I’m sick of having to explain why I’ve done what I did and how it links to an artist and my theme. I guess spontaneity is dead.

Saaame haha. Not to be pretentious but why can't I just make art for the sake of making art?! :dumbells:

I used to love art but now it's the subject I regret taking the absolute most. When people say it's "an easy GCSE" I literally just laugh because so far it has been the most stressful and time consuming of all my subjects. I did my 10 hour exam last week and can honestly say it was the most gruelling time of my life hahah. At the start of the year I was predicted an 8/9 which is a joke at this point as I've literally just given up :')

I’m in the middle of doing it and my back is in agony, can’t they get us some better chairs! But since I’m predicted a 3 I’m expecting a solid 2 because I chose the wrong theme

Asking question for my daughter. Are any of you doing AQA board and if so, is your school letting you have the radio on while you do your exam?

I didn't even know what i was doing for my final piece until the day before the 10 hour exam. I did mine recently on Monday and Tuesday 5 hours each, and can i just say how exhausted i am after it. It was a lot of work but i finished in time and the result was great but my sketchbook could be better so i'm hoping for a 5 or a 6 in art even though my target grades an 8 so yay. But, i'll always remember the exam because during the 10 hours i spilt green ink all over myself as i went to get it and had to be taken to first aid to get it out of my eyes and had to have a shower at school to rinse the ink off. After all that, i had to continue the exam anyways. Now i just laugh it off.

Found out the other day we still have an hour left 😠 and for the full 10 hours it was complete silence apart from coughing and sneezing since most of us were ill. My piece sucks but an hour ain’t gonna fix it 😫

Sameeee. I was told that we only had 10 hours, panicked when I ran out of time and then got told we had a random extra hour for some reason 😬🤔
