This exquisite, finely-detailed A* International GCSE Art sketchbook was completed by Hania Cho in 2002, while studying IGCSE Art and Design (CIE 0400) at ACG Strathallan College, Auckland, New Zealand. This was part of Hania’s Coursework project, for which she submitted an A4 sketchbook and a final painting (A2) based on a ‘Coastal Environment’ theme. Her work explored natural forms such as shells, fish, flax and landscapes as well as man-made items, such as anchors buried in sand.
The ten sketchbook pages above are just a sample from the comprehensive 43 page sketchbook that Hania produced for her Coursework project (note that in 2002 the CIE IGCSE Art & Design Coursework requirement was for a final project plus sketchbook, rather than the A2 portfolio of 4 sheets (8 sides) that is the maximum requirement today).
More of Hania’s sketchbook is visible in the YouTube clip below:
A highly talented and dedicated student, Hania also produced beautiful projects that achieved marks in the 90s at both AS and A2 Level. The Student Art Guide will bring you more articles about her work soon!
