Work by budding young artists has been showcased in an exhibition at an Aberdeen hotel.
Artwork by Harlaw Academy pupils aged from 15 to 17 years is on display in the Innov8 Bar at the Park Inn by Radisson.
It is part of an ongoing project for the Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) scheme, a link-up between the hotel team and pupils and teachers.
The pupils involved in the exhibition have just completed portfolios for National and Higher Qualifications.
The framed artwork represents the final expressive piece which has been selected from a group of work.
A wide range of art is on show including portraits, landscapes and still lifes.
The event was launched yesterday evening with pupils and parents from the school invited to see the display.

Drew McIntyre, principal teacher of expressive arts at Harlaw, said: “The school tries to celebrate the success of the pupils with an annual exhibition. To do so in a professional-looking location within our immediate community will allow the pupils, their families and the wider public to appreciate the quality on show.”
Frank Whitaker, general manager of the Park Inn by Radisson, said: “When a school talks about displaying pupils’ artwork, your first thoughts are not about art of this quality.
“The pictures are truly impressive, and it is fantastic to see not only that our region has such talented young artists, but also that they are taught, motivated and encouraged by a very passionate expressive arts department at Harlaw Academy.
He added: “This is yet another great example of where business and schools partner together for everyone’s benefit.”
The hotel and school formed a relationship in conjunction with DYW in 2017, and signed a Flagship Partnership Agreement in May 2018, which teaches pupils about life skills and encourages youngsters to consider hospitality as a career.
