Arts Summer School for Leicester


We provided project support in the classroom for a week during the annual Arts Summer School hosted by Sir Jonathan North Community College. During the week we helped the students with Photoshop as they produced hundreds of images from their family albums to form an animated movie of their lives so far. The excellent staff at SJNCC combined with the enthusiastic students meant that the planned work was completed ahead of schedule.

Fortunately, the computer rooms at SJNCC were equipped with Macs and PC's so we introduced the students to (the then newish) Apple Garageband and every participant produced a custom soundtrack for thier take home DVD - complete with custom cover too.The Phoenix Cinema showed the movies at a Saturday matinee as the opener for Garfield as a part of the celebration events.

“(it) was immensely satisfying to see how far summer school has come... not only in organisation but the quality of experience and the quality of the work produced. Everyone came with high expectations of themselves and us and the feedback has been to this credit.”
