    I'm confused because my teacher has said for the written exam we should choose one artist and one one designer and choose multiple examples of their work to write about. However on the SQA website it says that we need a minimum of 2 expressive and 2 design areas (aka both historical and contemporary.)

    I've only studied one expressive historical artist, and two contemporary designers. Can anyone help?

    I did higher art last year and I remember doing two. The designers we did were Zaha Hadid and I can't remember the other one. The artists we did were John Bryne and someone else.

    I don't think the time periods matter that greatly, it's just good to have them from different times so it gives you more to compare / contrast.

    I'm studying Van Gogh and Matisse (so 2 historical artists), and Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry (so 1 historical architect and 1 contemporary architect).

    Also, I don't know what your teacher is saying, but I think you need 2 artists and 2 designers and one piece by each artist / designer to talk about.

    You definitely need two. In my prelim I only wrote about one for each with examples but only got a maximum of half marks for each because I didn’t exemplify 2

    To pass the internally assessed unit you need two designers and two artists. However in the exam you can only do one if you wish!

    The way it better works is like this. There's a 10 mark for talking about social context. It would be quite difficult to make 10 fairly good points on just one artist, and so that's why you do 2 expressive and 2 designer. Do 5 points for the first artist, 5 points for the second.
    Same with the first question which could be about mood/atmosphere/form/colour anything like that.
    You CAN only talk about one artist and talk about 2 pieces but it's just overall harder to gain marks that way.
