An Exceptional International GCSE Art Sketchbook: Shells & Natural Forms
This page illustrates a range of great GCSE Art sketchbook ideas… such as the mixed media (textured wallpaper cuttings) that have been used in the fish drawings. The second sketchbook page depicts drawings of small flax items that the students made using traditional Maori weaving methods. This allowed the integration of a hands-on sculptural task, which gave extra variety to the course.

On this page of this outstanding International GCSE Art sketchbook, Manisha drew from the weaving she had made in the previous assignment. Although ‘manmade’ these sculptural flax pieces are crafted from natural forms. This exercise allowed Manisha to practise the blending of tone in a range of different mediums – something at which she excelled. The image on the left is particularly successful, involving a photocopy that has pieces cut away, with the gaps redrawn.
