CREATIVE young people have teamed up with five professional artists to stage an innovative exhibition.

Halton teenagers have produced a selection of original pieces ranging from drawing and animation to sculpture and book-making.

Their work, entitled Inspired Responses, is on show in a gallery at The Brindley until Saturday, February 15.

Halton Council arts development officer Louise Hesketh said: "Children from years seven to 11 have created marvels for you to wonder at in the gallery. Why not take a look to see what talent we have in Halton?”

Artists Beth Barlow, Jeni McConnell, Sarah Nicholson, Angela Sidwell and Claire Weetman led workshops based on their own practice.

They inspired pupils at six high schools and teenagers at HRMZ youth centre in Grangeway, Runcorn to create stencils, maps, sculptures, graphite drawings and films.

Students from special education schools were also involved in the project.
