The Weekly Challenge

Weekly Challenge, 12th February – Happy Birthday Angel

This week marks the 20th anniversary of Gateshead’s Angel of the North. To celebrate, we’ll have 12 challenges this year dedicated to themes around this fantastic landmark. They will be loosely themed so don’t worry if you don’t know the artwork. This week is a bit more specific so we’ve included some info and a photo below.

The challenges are part of the Angel20 programme in partnership with Gateshead Council’s Culture Team.

This week we’d like you to design a birthday card for the Angel. It can be traditional or silly, include a little birthday verse or images of the landmark. Don’t worry if you’ve never seen this artwork before. Just focus on what you think a 20 year old angel might like to see on their birthday card… you can get as creative as you like. 

If you have more time … 

Why don’t you make a birthday card, or just a card, for someone who is your angel? Who looks out for you?


Do you normally make all your birthday cards? Do you think you could? What did you enjoy about the challenge?

Share your card with us. Don’t forget to tell us what it was like doing it. You can tag #64MillionArtists and share with us on:
