Students get creative for Christmas
The designs from three Canterbury College students will be used as part of Strode Park Foundation’s Christmas card offering this year.
Forty students from both the Media and Visual Arts departments at the New Dover Road college, were invited by the Kent charity to send in designs for use in this year’s Christmas card selection.
The project got underway a couple of months ago and three students’ designs have now been selected. Level 3, Year 2 students Daniel Radu and James Wheeler (Games Development and Digital Design) and Darja Skaceka (Graphic Design) all showed something unique and using different art techniques that the charity hasn’t used before for its card designs.
Karen Jeal, Director of Fundraising and Communications said: “It was a real pleasure to work with the students on this project. We have never done anything like this, so it was great to build a partnership with Sarah Clyne and her colleagues at the college. We hope we can continue this positive relationship going forward.”
Sarah Clyne, Industry Liaison Officer, added: “Canterbury College were delighted to be asked by Strode Park Foundation to be involved in helping design cards for their Christmas collection 2021. Our students worked very hard to deliver some wonderful designs to the charity for selection – we are extremely proud of Daniel, James and Darja, whose designs were chosen. Working on Christmas card designs in Spring, may have seemed a little strange to our students, but gave them a real insight into the workings of a charity/business, who have to plan and work months in advance. Being involved in this project, with a charity that does such amazing work for adults and children with a range of disabilities was a privilege, and was a great work experience opportunity for our students too.”
These three designs will be on sale alongside a number of others for Strode Park Foundation’s 2021 Christmas cards, which will be available to buy later in the year.
