Rip I was super confident and now all my teacher does is yell at me for not annotating enough and not drawing ‘the right stuff’

Complains I don’t do enough work when I’m working and she actively stops me from trying to buff out my sketchbook a bit smh
My target is so low it’s depressing tbh

Wow amazing, thank you but I have got to ask what you mean by thumbnail and is there any chance you could show us your work online (much appreciated).

Hi Farhan,

Im really grateful for your guide on grade8/9 art and i am currently trying to follow it.
However im finding some bits hard to understand, like the meanings of the terminology used.
If you wouldnt mind doing so, could you post pictures of your pages so that i know what and how something should look like in the book. For example im not really sure what a thumbnail sketch page should look like.
Thanks

Hey Farhan,I seriously appreciate your advice on how to get a 9 ,it’s really helping me (more than my teachers lmao) but I’m kinda struggling to understand the initial ideas page ,Ik this was posted a year ago but if there’s any chance your seeing this could you possibly explain the initial ideas page for me and simplify it down to a more yr10 vocabulary explanation lmao thank you x

Sorry but that is usually classed as just photographic your work to show off the work rather than the photography. However if you did a big photoshoot or a typography (a series of different photos pieced together) then yes I'm sure that it would be valid.

hi,i have my gcse exam very soon and i am completely terrified. i am only at a 6 and i am really hoping for a 9 but i have missed many art lessons due to school holidays, lack of resources at home, and mock exams. we only have 2 or 3 hours per week of art so i feel like there was not much time in the first place, but im guessing schools have the same amount so i cant really complain haha. my art teacher is very strict so im scared of doing some ideas because i dont know if it will be wrong or right or if it is just too late.i only recently bought some art supplies so i could fully invest myself in my work at home and i want to follow a certain route with my artwork but i just dont know if she will agree or if she will tell me to rip out my pages. i am willing to work extremely hard for that 9 but i just need some help in whether i should be bolder with my work and explore more artists because i have only done 2 so far. i am so scared and very stressed out so if there is any advice you could give me then that would be very helpful. thank you

Hi!
Thank you for this! Do you regret taking art for GCSE because im really fed up with it now and find it so pointless.
I really regret taking art!
Oh my god,yes! Sometimes in my art lessons ( every art lesson) I question myself and my friends that why the f*** did I take art though it gives me depression due to pressure!
