Aireborough Art Menagerie

The recent ALPT art exhibition proved to be a great success with a menagerie of animals making their presence felt in Airborough.

On the 20th and 21st June 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.

In addition to the animals, paintings, pictures and 3D art from each school added to the variety of skills and imagination on view.

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.’

An art menagerie comes to Aireborough – ALPT art showcase exhibition

On Tuesday the 20th and Wednesday the 21st June the schools of the Aireborough Learning Partnership Trust (ALPT) will showcase the artistic talents of their pupils at an art exhibition in the Methodist Church Hall, off Oxford Road, Guiseley.

Using a mindfulness approach numerous animal sculptures have been produced  whilst over the two days a Henri Rousseau inspired jungle scene will be produced by pupils who visit the exhibition. This will be accompanied by paintings, pictures and 3D art  from each school all providing lots of variety and plenty to see.

The hall will be open on Tuesday from 9.30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Wednesday 9.30 a.m. until 4.45 p.m. with free entry and we would encourage you to come along and see the imaginations and skills of the pupils coming to life.

Over the two days pupils from each of the schools will be in the hall to talk about their work and answer questions about it while also helping to produce the collaborative jungle scene.

We do hope that you and your families can make some time to come along and support this wonderful event.
