The Pitfalls of Art and Design

THINKING ART A ‘FILLER’ SUBJECT; - Art can be fun, but it is also an unbelievable amount of work requiring a constant and on-going effort. Art should be taken for one reason that there is enjoyment in creating images using line, tone, shape, form, texture and colour.

SLOW STARTER; - the fear of unoriginal initial ideas or lack of interpretation, remember it is not the idea that matters but what you do with it. The simplest beginnings can become innovative and creative successes. Delaying work in the hope of eventually coming upon a ‘perfect’ idea rarely works, what it does create is panic leading to last minute ideas that fail to demonstrate full potential.



Tacky: hearts; glitter; prancing horses; leaping dolphins or bunches of roses. Overly ‘pretty’, cliché and/or unimaginative subjects are not successful.

Uninteresting: common subject-matter is fine but making no effort to present these in an innovative way is a great error, look to how to create exciting ideas and clever compositions.

Simple: common compositional error when student try to avoid challenging arrangements and choose a scene that is ‘flat’ or formless contains little or no evidence of your skill area

Unbalanced: Every image and preparatory sheet should be arranged in a well-balanced, aesthetically pleasing way.


POOR SKILLS;- everyone is in the process of improving their skills and becoming better but flaunting weaknesses should be avoided, remove weak pieces and ensure that presentation of skills is shown in the best light. If messy and struggle to control paint, look to gestural, expressive brush strokes, it gives the appearance that lack of control is intentional. Show strengths as a distractive mechanism, while confronting your weaknesses head-on, for example if struggling to draw realistically consider gestural drawing, distortion, manipulation or semi-abstraction.

LACK OF DEVELOPMENT; - Difficulties with development can be a body of unrelated work OR work that doesn’t develop at all.

RESTARTING WORK; - the perfectionist wanting every aspect of their portfolio to be perfect but continually restarting pieces of work is not a good idea. Those who consistently restart work have less time to complete additional pieces and the folder will consists of incomplete pieces that do not show skills at their best.


DRAWING FROM SECONDARY; -Working largely from secondary sources can indicate a lack of personal interest, a lack of originality and plagiarism issues. Using only images sourced from magazines, books and the internet suggests a lack of motivation to find own primary sources this can lead to superficial work.

SPENDING TOO LONG ON ANNOTATION; - It is an excellent tool for quickly suggesting refinement ideas, evaluating work and communicating concepts and ideas but it should not overshadow or course side stepping of visual material. The practical work matters and time should be spent primarily creating outstanding drawings and paintings, and use annotation as and when is necessary. Put the art first and the annotation second.

POOR PRESENTATION; - presentation is important as Art and Design is a visual subject. The way artwork is mounted, arranged and put together shows enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic. Whereas scrunched, dog-eared, smudged works can communicate the idea of disorganisation and someone who couldn’t care less about the subject.

PROCRASTINATION; - ultimate downfall is postponement, leaving things until the last minute never works in Art, even those who are skilful, highly able need time to produce a great Art project.
