Im a 5th year art student and im getting overwhelmed with the amount of artists and chapters of art history we need to know. I have no clue where to start studying/ revising or how to do it, does anyone have any study techniques or know how to study for the art history exam ?

and also what is a safe amount of content to learn ?

Ella, our teacher told us to have like 2-3 chapters per section. So for example, Irish Art: Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and two other chapters of your/your teachers choice European Art: Lots of choice here, we studied the High Renaissance with artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and etc. We also studied surrealism with artists like Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte. Lastly, we studied Carvaggio and he was from the Baroque era I think. Appreciation of Art: Here, the Gallery/Museum Question came up every year. You will most likely go to a museum and gallery trip with your school later in the year, if possible. Our teacher might cover one more chapter with us for this section, but I don't know yet.

I would suggest you just study the first section or the ones you like first. Knowing how to do sketches for the questions is really important, as, if you know your sketches then its a lot easier to describe them then. As for study techniques, writing out your own notes and doing exam papers are the best in my opinion. While doing the exam questions, be careful to adress all parts of the questions. If there is a statement in the question, then relate it back to all of the other parts of the question. Also, draw your sketches in between paragraphs, not just all of them at the very end of your essay. I know that there is so much information to learn in each chapter and that its quite hard to learn off, so try watching some youtube videos about the topic, so that you will get interested in it. I sometimes watch the history channel 'Biographics' about artists and they are quite interesting. Anyways, I hope that this helps and try not to worry about it too much, its worth like 37% I think but is still worth the effort :)

thanks so much @SaNdy978, so when you say 2-3 chapters per section, if we take the section on european art, could i just study like 5-6 artists rather than like 12 ? Would i be covered if i did that (its usually 1 or 2 artists per chapter, so that would mean studying 2-3 chapters of european art)

my teacher said we need to know atleast 12 arists for section 2 ??? anyone know if thats true

ya @EllaRyan26 that's about right, you're never guaranteed an artist will come up, we have about 12 properly studied and another maybe 5 that we just quickly looked at, you can kind of guess a bit and prioritise those artists who haven't come up in a while or have yet to come up ie. Degas and Matisse came up last year so they most likely won't come up this year or even the year after. Maybe it would help if you knew one artist from a few different movements ie. Impressionism, post-impressionism, expressionism, fauvism ect. so that you have a few options in Q.15 if some of the movements come up.
