Yate Academy artists' work goes on display

ART produced by Yate school pupils has gone on display at the town's heritage centre.

The works by 27 Yate Academy art students include drawings, watercolours, collage and photography.

A total of 86 pieces, including some from other schools, went on display on June 29 for Children's Art Week, with the exhibition due to run until Thursday, July 7.

Visiting on the opening day was Metro Mayor Dan Norris, who encouraged other people to visit the centre as it bounces back from the pandemic.

He said: “So many young people love doing art at school, and this exhibition is a great opportunity for them to show off their talent – and a brilliant reason for local people to ‘explore local’.

"Maybe you’ll be one of the first to see the work of the next budding Banksy!"

Yate & District Heritage Centre is open from 10am-4pm on Tuesdays to Thursdays and 10am-3pm on Saturdays.
