Flights of fancy

This colourful design by a young learning-disabled artist is one of 50 kites hanging from the rafters of Glasgow's Merchant Square building as part of an international kite exhibition organised by Scottish-based visual arts charity Project Ability. The exhibition includes kites designed by children and adults with learning disabilities or mental health problems from all over the world, and will run until 4 October. The centrepiece is a 40-foot bug-shaped kite designed by Art Trek Artists, a co-operative business managed by five learning-disabled artists. Ruth Jeffrey (above left) and the Project Ability artists are holding kite-making workshops throughout the festival.
