 The ORNC and ESOL students at Lewisham College 

The Old Royal Naval College and the ESOL students of Lewisham College teamed up for a project about the chapel at the Maritime Museum. They did a photography course to begin with, taking photographs of interesting elements and textures within the chapel and they also performed a study of a painting in the chapel. From here we designed a workshop to integrate all the different elements of the project and create narratives based on this painting.

The students had to work in teams to create their animations, using the photographs they took to make collages for the scenes. Throughout the project we introduced new film making terminology and vocabulary. The students visibly gained confidence, not only their artistic ability but in their communication and interaction with each other in order to work together to create something collaboratively.
