Welcome to the Student Art Guide

This website is dedicated to helping Art students excel. We share resources to help you achieve outstanding grades in high school Art qualifications, such as IGCSE, GCSE, A Level, NCEA, AP Studio and IB Art. Experienced teachers and high-achieving students publish new ideas, tips, techniques and case studies for you weekly. All resources are free.

We assist high school Art students by publishing:

  • Great student artwork, so that others can learn and be inspired (this can also help you develop a name for your work and become famous)! We love to celebrate the effort, achievement and success of dedicated students and high school Art Departments
  • Comprehensive, up-to-date articles, sharing valuable information about how to excel and filled with motivating illustrations for Art students and teachers
  • Free teaching and learning resources, for use in classrooms or self-directed learning
  • Recommendations about products and art supplies used by high school Art students and teachers
