AQA History of Art AS LevelWatch
But what I've done, is create a grid, on one side is says painting;sculpture;architecture and on the other it has subjects and genres; historical and social context etc. Then, in each box I've written what I would write if that topic came up.
That's for HART2, and for HART1 I think all you can do is keep practising questions, and looking at mark schemes.
Hope this helps!
Good luck in your exams!
Will definitely try your grid too
I want to study History of Art. However, they do not teach it at my school.
I was wondering if anyone has any advice on History of Art?
I think that I may ask the A-Level art teacher if he has enough time to help me a few times after school each week or maybe I will try to find a tutor that could help?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated
It has some very practical aspects: analysing how we look at things, ways of seeing, social issues etc. But i cant imagine it being nearly as much fun studying it in isolation. It was one of the only subjects where i valued the input of fellow students, simply because it got you thinking in new ways.
I would be happy to help anyone a bit more if they are stuck, but i don't really use these forums much (because it makes me feel old/a weirdo for looking at kids talking to each other), pm me.
For AS Level you cover just Unit 1 & 2 which are, respectively, "Visual Analysis & Interpretation" & "Themes in History of Art".
The AQA website is the place to go, as it provides all the info teachers need to plan their lessons, or for private candidates like myself.
I basically printed out EVERYTHING from the website from the Specifications, Schemes of Work, Mark Schemes, Reports on the Examinations, everything - and then went through it with a fine toothcomb, making notes and taking heed of the examples they provide. This way I will discover exactly what the exam board expect to be taught & learnt for the exam.
Start by looking at the Specifications for 2014 pdf and then the Schemes of Work pdf, this can be found via the Teaching & learning resources link http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/art-a...ning-resources
Sorry I can't be anymore help, am short on time. Best of luck.
