    What on earth was I think when I picked It urghh, the Homework and Coursework is so stressful, at first it was fun drawing, I like art but GCSE Art has made me start despising it, I swear to God if I get one more Homework I'll rip my hair out. I warn all of you in Year 9 FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STAY AWAY FROM ART.

    I like Art but the Exam Board has broken my spirit. Gonna have to pull an all nighter today urgh, as I got two letters home, as me and many other people in my class need to catch up.

    I understand your pain.
    The amount of all nighters I had to pull to get the damn coursework done in time for my teacher.
    Oh and the amount of lunch times I had to spend in the art department to finish a painting.
    YOU'LL FEEL SO FREE WHEN YOU'VE GOT IT ALL DONE THO.

    I felt your pain. It really makes you hate something you thought you enjoyed. Glad I got the A* and have never drawn/painted anything since

    Difference is guys I'm not getting A or A* I'll be lucky if I get a C because with me when I become less and less interested my quality starts to decline and I rush, my work is rlly sh*te now, but maybe I can go back and redo some artwork.Its just I need TIME! Time time time, the one thing that can't be brought.

    Ok what did you mostly use for your coursework Paint, waterpaint, oil patels or what? I think I should invest in better supplies.

    Watercolour, biro, fineliner and pencil crayons mostly. Ocassionally charcoal or oil pastels. I don't think at gcse it doesn't matter too much about materials aslong as you use 4 different types to be safe.

    Thanks though I'm probably gonna use acrylics as waterpaint scares me, do you know what the lowest grade for Art GCSE in your class is? I wanna prepare myself for when I fail.

    Nobody failed in my class, even the people who were 'okay' at art got atleast a C and i'm sure you're better than them

    staying up till 7am
    omg...I only stay up till 11:00 pm and idc if I have art hwk or not.Sleep for me is important or I'll be moody for the rest of the day.
    The only reason i took art is bc I enjoy it & you don't have to write SO MUCH for it like other subjects like Sociology etc..
    btw how did your final piece look like?
