Students on Creative Studies courses offered by Wolverhampton's "outstanding" Adult Education Service will showcase their talents in an exhibition beginning shortly.

The Creative Studies department offers a wide range of art and craft courses, and the exhibition, called Together, demonstrates the technical and creative skills the students have developed in drawing, painting and printmaking.

Councillor Phil Page, Wolverhampton City Council's Cabinet Member for Schools, Skills and Learning, said: "This exhibition is a showcase of the talents of our Creative Studies students.

"It highlights the progression they have made during their time with the Adult Education Service and celebrates their achievements. Hopefully it will also inspire visitors who are thinking about unlocking their artistic ability by joining one of our courses.

"Classes are available in all levels from beginner to the more advanced, and I'd urge anyone interested in finding out more to speak to the Adult Education Service about the courses on offer."

Together opens on Monday 9 March, 2015, with a special launch event from 6pm to 8pm and will then be on display at the Foyer Building, St George's Parade, until Monday 27 April. The Foyer Building is open from 9am to 8pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4pm on Fridays.
