    Hey guys!

    So by the title this post is pretty self-explanatory... Bascially, I am moving to a new school to start Year 12 and I finally want to take art since it's my one true interest. The only drawback is that I need an Art grade B or above or an assessed portfolio. I'm sure that if I stick to a plan, I can produce a portfolio but my only question is how should I go about doing this? Can anyone provide me with some step-by-step instructions or guide? How long should this be? Is there anything I have to focus on?

    I talked to the art teacher at school and she recommended this:
    - Use mixed media
    - Include my own photos
    - Produce small-scale and large-scale work
    - Take inspiration from artists and produce work based on that

    Anyways, I'd appreciate you guys helping me out since I finally want to focus on art and leave behind the sciences and math that I hate!

    That’s fine!! Who said you have to? I did the same with history and it all turned out fine in the end. I was also going to do the same with art, just talk to a teacher and convince them that you are dedicated by showing them some work you might have done just as a hobby xx

    Hi! The only reason I'm asking is that it's going to be a new school and I don't know if they'll accept that.
    Also I heard from a friend the school can be a litle strict sometimes, but I really don't know.
