I'm 15 male and I'm choosing my A levels. Do you think I should choose art? Iv never done it at gcse but only up to yr 9 because it was compulsory. I don't really practise art execpt for doodles in my books lol but this is what I draw when I actually concentrate.*Do you think I'm capable of it at a level and is it hard at a level?
I drew this first image at age 13
I drew this recently and it took me about 15/20 minutes.*
I drew this yesterday lol was bored.*
This took me 25/30 minutes to draw and was recently.*
I have no proper expericence in art and I have never taken clubs but done this myself. If so, what careers can I go into with art. Do you think my school would let me choose art?

Yes art is very hard and a lot of work, and if you want endure two years of pain and terror then go ahead.
Art is not considered a topp subject and really if you want to do art you have got have your heart set on being an artist.

Firstly, I would like to point out that you don't have to have you heatr set on being an artist to do art!
Secondly, no offence, but I'm sure you're in the best position to choose it. WEhilst I'm not saying you have no chance whatsoever, there are some things you need to consider.
- Some schools won't let you take the A Level without the GCSE.
- It's a lot of work and time. Be prepared to put the effort in.
- It's not just about drawing pretty pictures. You will need a wide skill set (I don't think you'd be allowed to just do pictures like the ones you've posted) and the ability to analyses, develop ideas and reflect.
- Art A Level is not like art as a concept. In this way, I think most people would need the GCSE.to adjust to doing art as asubject. You'll no doubt have heard that A Level is a big step up from GCSE. Imagine that huge step up without the little step first. (I was about to say you won't be able to resit modules either but of course the same will apply to other subjects now with the reform.)
