Talented teachers have taken over a school exhibition space while the kids are away – thanks to Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

Seven art teachers from five city schools are exhibiting their work as part of the gallery’s ongoing schools’ exhibition programme.

Dedicated space in the sculpture gallery and popular café has been made available for the Young Artists Series, which encourages schools to submit their work for show.

Throughout the year pupils have shown their work – but during the school holidays it’s the teachers’ turn to showcase their artistic skills.

Taking part are teachers James Millichamp and Emma Bowater, from Wolverhampton Grammar School, Phil Sutton, Kings School, Jody Williams, Moreton School, Kate Collins and Deb Gaunt, St Matthias School, and Aaron Jones, Willenhall E-ACT Academy.

Julia Foster, the gallery’s freelance cultural learning co-ordinator, said: “School might be out but teachers are in here at the gallery – it’s time for them to take the credit and showcase their artworks outside the classroom.”
