25/05/2007 ANIMATION EXPERIENCE FOR LORETO ARTISTS

A year-long project for some sixth form Art students from Loreto College Coleraine reached its culmination recently.

The group of A Level art students from Loreto College had been developing projects using claymation to produce moving image projects.  Miss Michelle McGarvey, Teacher of Art and Design, received two bursaries last year from The General Teaching Council for NI and The McCord Bursary, which enabled links to be formed with Animation professionals and the Nerve Centre, Derry.  These links have been developed throughout the year, allowing a number of students to work with animators in school and at the Nerve Centre. 

During a recent trip to the Nerve Centre, the students met with Mr. Edwin Poots, MLA, Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure.   During this visit the students were able to explain and discuss their work with the Minister.

The students and Miss McGarvey were congratulated on the high standard of the work they produced in this enterprise by Mr Paul Cunning, Head of Art and Design at Loreto, and by Mr Brian Lenehan, College Principal.
