tk_advent_calendar_11From animated art films to interactive advent calendars and Christmas e-cards, get in the festive spirit with Tate Kids at www.tate.org.uk/kids.

This winter children can enjoy a wide range of fun, free art activities on Tate Online’s new dedicated site for children.

Tate Kids online advent calendar is chosen by and dedicated entirely to children this year. Visit a winter wonderland scene and open a door every day to reveal a stunning work of art and find out what other children like most about their favourite work from the Tate Collection. Each day there will be a competition to win an exciting gift by answering questions and learning more about the chosen art work.

From the second week of December, children can send free Christmas cards to their friends using Tate and BT’s brand new e-cards. Selecting from a wide range of cards featuring works from the Tate Collection, children can surprise their friends with a personal message and a festive image, including angels and snowstorms.

Tate Kids has launched a brand new film section for children to watch over the Christmas season. Click online this month to see the first Art Sparks programme, an art film made just for kids. The Brothers McLeod – who previously worked on projects including Pedro and Frankensheep for CBBC and are represented by Aardman – have worked with Tate to create art films which will be shown on Tate Kids each month. Featuring animations as well as children in the galleries, this month will focus on Cornelia Parker’s Thirty Pieces of Silver 1988-9.
