Oh wow. You are obviously someone that is very inexperienced with Art. I just finished GCSE Art. The amount of work that we had to put in was crazy. I can't imagine how much work would have to be put in for A level Art, and that is the only reason I'm not taking it on. It is extremely difficult and the grading is marked very strictly. We don't just draw or paint. There's a lot more to it, and I personally think it's ridiculous that you would think that, and post it online, therefore insulting those that have to put in so much work. I can tell you, it has the most work out of any other subject, and not anyone can do it. Not everyone is talented at art.

Really? A Joke? I guess you don't do A-Level art then! And just to inform you- drawing/painting is certainly not all you do for A Level art- what about sculpture, ceramics, photography, textile's, illustrations, animation, glass art, calligraphic art...and the list goes on. Also, another side of art, which you obviously haven't thought about, is the huge amount of contextual and historical research that's needed to get good marks...also, the 2000 word essay which needs to be completed...also, the presentation process which takes hours (I've been there, done that, and got the t-shirt). So now that your a bit more educated in the world of art, could you please understand that A-level art is not a joke.
