    Hi! I'm planning my GCSE art coursework now over the summer. I want to know how I should go about with my coursework to obtain good grades. What are some artists I can look at? My theme is Urban Environments.

    Thank you!

    I am currently in year 12 and did what you are doing when I was going into GCSE. To be honest you are much better doing art you enjoy throughout the summer to improve your skills as an artist. Then when you are back at school your teacher will be able to help you with your project - after all she is marking it and it doesnt make sense not to follow their advice. Hope this helped a little.

    Have a look at the 'Student Art Guide' website. They have really good resources for GCSE and A-Level as well as actual galleries showcasing students work so that should give you some good ideas.

    If you want to obtain good grades you'll have to take and do all the advice that your teacher tells you to do. They are the one giving you the grade at the end of the day so do their preferences. Art is a very bias subject, if the teacher dislikes what you're doing they'll give you a low grade, likes it and you'll get a good one. Art teachers will tell you what to do and change your ideas, you'll just have to go with the flow if you want a good grade I'm afraid.

    Here's some stuff from my GCSE book. I was only given a C grade (1 point off a B, I don't think the teacher liked me much) so you can imagine what the standard is like for an A.
