Art teacher creates online gallery of students’ work after exhibition is cancelled by coronavirus

When A-level art students at one Norfolk school had their planned public exhibition cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak – their teacher decided to create an ONLINE gallery so people could still see their work, ITV is reporting.

Vasavi Koka, a teacher at Diss High School, said she wanted to reward the hard work the teenagers had put in over the past 18 months. So she photographed every piece that was due to go on display and uploaded the pictures to Instagram.

“For the past eighteen months, my sixth form students have worked with genuine industry, commitment and enthusiasm. They have strived to achieve so much and we were genuinely excited to showcase their talent, ingenuity and imagination.”

Taking schoolwork online is becoming increasingly common during the lockdown period.
