The creative talents of students from local primary and secondary schools will be on display in St Albans this weekend.

The Samuel Ryder Academy in Drakes Drive is hosting the annual Schools Arts Exhibition, now in its fourth year, on Saturday and Sunday, January 24 and 25.

Over 50 pieces of artwork from 16 local secondary schools and five local primaries will be on display in an exhibition which is open to all.

The exhibition has been curated by local artist Katherina Kubrick and there is also a visiting guest artist, Nick Gentry, who went to school in Garston and now sells his artwork worldwide.

A whole range of work will be on display including sculptures, paintings, prints, photography and textile work.
