Creative former Wolverhampton Adult Education Service learners will have their work proudly go on display later this month.

The Graduate Showcase will see artwork from a number of students who studied on the Access to Higher Education diploma be featured in an exhibition, which will run from 20 November until 9 January.

The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate the progression and achievement of the learners, many of whom are now either working artists, studying at a higher level, or venturing into the creative industries.

Councillor Phil Page, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for Schools, Skills and Learning, said: "This new exhibition records the progress of learners from their time with the Adult Education Service to where they are today in their careers and as artists.

"It really goes to show how people can develop their skills and transform what may have simply been a hobby or ambition into a full time career."

The exhibition will take place at Wolverhampton Adult Education Service, in St Georges Parade, Old Hall Street and will be available to view 9am to 8pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Fridays.
