The creative talents of adult learners in Wolverhampton will take pride of place at an exhibition opening shortly. The city’s “Outstanding”-rated Adult Education Service will display a variety of work by students who recently completed its Level 2 and 3 BTEC courses in Art and Design. The exhibition will feature paintings, ceramics, sculptures, video and installation by students Connor Baker, Jazz Farmer, Alex Fisher, Josepha Fontiveros, Charmaine Host, Adam Howells, Edward Kemshell, Alex Manderson, Tomos Price, Sharifa Vernon and Carole Ward.
Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: “Our Adult Education Service’s art students always produce excellent work and this year is no different. This exciting exhibition of original art and design is the culmination of their efforts and will be well worth a visit.”
The exhibition will be on display at the Foyer Building on St George's Parade from Thursday 7 July to Friday 15 July, 2016, during normal office hours. People are also invited to a private view on Wednesday 6 July, 2016, from 6-8pm when visitors can speak to students about the course and their work.
As well as BTEC courses, the Adult Education Service also offers a Level 3 Access to Higher Education Diploma in Art and Design, designed for people thinking of a career in art and design who want to go to university to study the arts.
