Christmas card designs and activities
Are you someone who writes their Christmas cards early, or do you suddenly realise the last posting date has come and you haven’t even started writing them?!
Do you buy your Christmas cards, or do you make them yourself?
Have you ever thought about the creative ideas and work that goes into designing them?
The Victoria and Albert Museum have an excellent online collection of Christmas card designs, many dating from over 100 years ago.
- For our art and design students see if you can seek inspiration for creating your own designs.
- Our design students could research further into this through the library book by Scott Witham, Festive: the art and design of promotional mailing.
- For our music students, see how many feature carols and think about whether you could write your own carol. Check out the our library resources on Christmas carols.
- Or maybe you just want to sit back and relax and watch some Christmas films?
