Students reflections whilst creating the artwork.
The girls in the art class chose the very cute and vulnerable ‘greater glider’ whilst the boys wanted to feature something more powerful and what better than the ‘powerful owl’ – the natural predator of the glider.
Habitat loss through forest clearing is having a dramatic effect on the numbers of both species. Fewer trees mean fewer hiding spaces for the glider and easier prey for the owl; however, this also means fewer nesting spots for the owl and so their numbers are also in decline.
It was very interesting watching the two groups working separately on two different heroes to then coming together to combine into a single stunning and very moving artwork.
Thank you for your collaboration and creativity
