Visual Arts HL Choice HELP

I was wondering if a HL in visual arts is doable for someone who can barely draw but has interest in art? Will it be extremely hard and would I be better off?

A girl in my art class asked the teacher the same thing. He pointed at the piece of wood and said that if she submitted that as an artwork and gave a very thoughtful idea behind it, she could score just as well as any one else. 

A girl recently completed IB and were work was AMAZING, so very realistic and pretty, but it had no real meaning behind it, and she only got a 5(our teacher also predicted her a 5) :(

So yeah, you can probably do well even if you're not the best if you are creative.

Greetings, all The IB wants to see is progress in your artwork. Have you picked a theme? its inpoerant to have a theme in your artwork to not confuse the IB or the teacher. Once you have a theme as long as you can show progress you will receive at least a 5 in IB art. The difference between SL and HL are not that different in what is needed. i would stick with HL pick a theme and make sure to show progress. Make sure to source all your work as well sure your teacher will go over it but the Ib is very keen on that. For intense if you are inspired you must show what inspired you through a link or printing the image if its online. I always keep a separate Google docs sheet what matches my art sketchbook. So if I'm inspired i just match the image what inspired me to the page number on my sketchbook. Getting back to your question yes you can do it and still receive a high grade as long as your work makes sense and shows progress.
