ART students from Wymondham High School were given the chance to discover what it's like to be a professional artist after showcasing their skills at a Norwich exhibition.

Pupils from the designated specialist arts college exhibited work for their GCSE and A-Level courses at a public gallery.

The work was shown at the Horace Blue Gallery in Lower Goat Lane from Thursday until Saturday.

Students' families and friends were also invited to a private viewing on Friday, as well as the governors of the school.

One of the pieces she had chosen to go on show was her interpretation of a portrait by Karen Stamper, Standing Tall, which shows a woman looking worse for wear after a night out.

Ella said: 'In the future I would like to combine my studies and do French and Art and possibly look at studying somewhere abroad.'

Head of art Neil Moulton said: 'This is the first year the school has done this, and we think it is great giving students a chance to exhibit their work like this.

'Not a lot of galleries would do this, and it does give them a taste of what it would be like to be a professional artist.'
