@cardiffmetCSAD #cmetcreate


Welcome to Cardiff Metropolitan University's School of Art & Design Creative Challenge. To keep you busy our staff and students have devised some creative challenges for you that can be done at home.

You can have a go at any of the challenges and take as much or as little time as you like over them.

When you've completed one you can post a picture or video on Instagram @cardiffmetCSAD with the tags provided for each challenge.

We'll be taking a look every Friday at the submissions, choosing our favourites and sharing them on our feed. You can do as many as you like, whenever you like.

Choose a project from the two sections:

Pick a project: If you're feeling adventurous, check out the wide range of exciting projects designed to get your creative minds working! Great for developing interdisciplinary thinking skills and creativity.

Subject challenge: If you would like to try a subject-specific challenge, check out discipline-specific briefings. Especially useful if you want to build a portfolio to apply to one of our courses or are joining us for the next academic year, or just for fun!

Croeso i Her Greadigol Ysgol Celf a Dylunio Prifysgol Fetropolitan Caerdydd. Er mwyn eich cadw'n brysur mae ein staff a'n myfyrwyr wedi dyfeisio rhai heriau creadigol i chi y gellir eu gwneud gartref.

Gallwch roi cynnig ar unrhyw un o'r heriau a chymryd cymaint neu gyn lleied o amser ag y dymunwch drostynt.

Pan fyddwch wedi cwblhau un, gallwch bostio llun neu fideo ar Instagram @cardiffmetCSAD gyda'r tagiau wedi'u darparu ar gyfer pob her.

Byddwn yn edrych bob dydd Gwener ar y cyflwyniadau, yn dewis ein ffefrynnau ac yn eu rhannu ar ein Oriel. Gallwch chi wneud cymaint ag y dymunwch, pryd bynnag y dymunwch.

Dewiswch brosiect o'r ddwy adran:

Pigwch brosiect: Os ydych chi'n teimlo'n anturus, edrychwch ar yr ystod eang o brosiectau cyffrous a'u dyfeisiwyd i gael eich meddyliau creadigol i weithio! Gwych ar gyfer datblygu sgiliau meddwl rhyngddisgyblaethol a chreadigrwydd.

Her pwnc: Os hoffech chi roi cynnig ar her pwnc-benodol, edrychwch ar y briffiau a nodir gan ddisgyblaeth. Yn arbennig o ddefnyddiol os ydych chi am adeiladu portffolio i wneud cais i un o'n cyrsiau neu os ydych chi'n ymuno â ni am y flwyddyn academaidd nesaf, neu am hwyl yn unig!
