A VERITABLE art menagerie came to Aireborough when the schools of the Aireborough Learning Partnership Trust (ALPT) showcased the artistic talents of their pupils at an art exhibition in the Methodist Church Hall in Guiseley.

Large 3D animal sculptures, produced using a mindfulness approach, formed the central core of the exhibition while a Henri Rousseau inspired jungle scene was produced by the schools over the two days of the exhibition on June 20 and 21.

Each school had produced a 3D animal using mindfulness techniques which also gave opportunities for pupils to use a variety of skills and their imagination to produce pictures and other artistic formats.

Chair of the ALPT, Alison Anslow said: "The ALPT schools are at the heart of our community and this was a fantastic showcase of the talents of the young people in our area. It was wonderful to see the imaginations and skills of our pupils coming to life in the exhibition. The animals were stunning and enjoyed by pupils and visitors alike.’
