I have the AQA AS one - all I know for A2 is that one of the topics is 'Natural Forms'. The topics weren't greeted with much enthusiasm at my school; seems they're all a bit too... rigid, if that makes sense. Wish we'd get something more open to interpretation like: 'Exposure', 'Discord', 'Fear' etc... :s

Thanks! I think this is the same exam - tho my AS paper from last year mentions Art and Design (Fine Art) on the second page. Do they do different exacms for TExtiles, photography etc ? Last year our questions were "Windows and Doors", Altered Scale, Carnivals? etc - Was that the same for you?
I know what you mean about Portratists - we have spent a whole term doing Human form/Life etc . Tho I am not that brilliant at it.....
Tho' Fantastics Costumes/Pattern could be adapted to Portraits in a way - how about use a head-dress - african art - Henna Tatoos etc etc
And Attention to Detail - could be a portrait of a girl sewing or drawing or something?

I was given my questions today for the Art and Design (Fine Art) ARTB4 exam, I think these might be the one's you're looking for as they're different to the above.

1. Collection of everyday objects.
2. Figures in groups.
3. The characteristics of materials.
4. The ancient city of babylon.
5. Natural forms.
6. Political or social events and issues.
7. People at work.
8. Speed and motion.

Personally I'm not feeling very inspired for any of these at the moment

Hehe I'm thinking the first one too, it's the only one I've really had any ideas for. The babylon one seems so random, and I really wish they could have just given us a little bit more inspiring starting points.

I really wanted to do 'The characteristics of materials' because its really broad, but I was thinking of doing the human figure and parts of the body using cardboard and bubble wrap and paiting ontop etc but I can't find any artists that do it in that way. The artists listed all do landscape or scultpure and I can't find any artists that do it in anyway that I'm thinking. I then thought to do the 'Collections of Everyday objects' but in an expressive way and encorporating the mixed media approach, however they are all very precise photographic painters. Do any of you know of any artists working in a mixed media way for either of these topics, please help!? Really fretting as teachers have told me I should be well into artist copies by now (!!

Hehe go for it with the ancient city of babylon. I bet you could create something quite interesting with that one if you tried. I'm so indecisive that I'm now hovering around natural forms, despite the fact we did it for our first AS project. Hmmm...

I think that's so odd; we've beeing doing it as our AS for AQA this year too. Honestly, are they too lazy to think up new topics? -.- That said, their are loads of paths you can take with Natural Forms. I started with seeds, bones, bark etc and ended up with a huge macro painting of the inside of a pomegranate!

I agree, I think it's strange to have the same topic. However, I also agree there are loads of different paths, it's quite a broad subject and I just want to do something I'll enjoy for this last project hehe. Natural forms take 2

"The placing and organisation of figures in groups can be either carefully managed and staged or random and haphazard, depending on the intentions of the artist. Contrasting examples can be seen in sculptures by Giacometti, in the paintings of Bill Jacklin and in the photographs of Jeff Wall. Look at appropriate examples and respond in your own way to Figures in Groups."

Sorry to be a pain, but does anyone have the paper handy so that they can type out the question for "The characteristics of materials". I know it's really last minute but I've left mine at school.

Thanks for the help.
