Artists with a combined teaching experience of 200 years will be putting their work on display this October..

The third annual Norfolk Art Teachers and Educators exhibition, during half-term week, will bring together the work of 25 practising art teachers from a range of schools and colleges across the county.

The exhibition, at St Margaret's Church in St Benedict's Street, running from Monday October 26 until Saturday October 31, will be a chance for teachers to practise what they preach and set a great example to their students by exhibiting their own art work.

On Saturday, October 31, there will also be demonstrations of different art techniques, plus in the afternoon all the artists will be present with their portfolios to talk about their work in person.

The first two exhibitions have been very successful, with excellent feedback from students and their parents, and many exhibitors selling their work.

This success has spurred the participants on to produce even more fresh and exciting work for this year, with teachers from City of Norwich School, the Hewett School, Cromer High School, City College Norwich, Norwich School, Gresham's School and Paston College.
