As part of their Christmas activities, art & design students were given the task of bringing Christmas cheer to the children’s wards, utilising their illustration and graphics skills. The students used chalk pens and poster paints to create a range of Christmas scenes and characters including snowmen, gingerbread men, elves and reindeer!

Art Foundation student Tom Gray (formerly of King James School, Knaresborough) made the most of the experience as he wants to study Graphics and Illustration at university. He said: “Working on the windows of the children’s ward, my festive Elf went down well with the young patients and the nursing staff. I enjoyed creating something a bit different and it was a useful experience; working spontaneously, to a short timescale – very different to sitting in a studio at College and having plenty of time to consider my work. Leading up to Christmas it was a fun thing to do, and our work definitely brighten up the wards, they look really festive.”

The art & design live Christmas project was at the request of former York College Early Years student, Megan Holmes, who recently graduated with a BA (Hons) in Educational Leadership, and who is now the Play Leader on several children’s wards at Leeds General Infirmary.
