About the owl Owlbert Einstein is a visual interpretation of the super powers of the art of flight. Owlbert is a collaboration between Midford and Oldfield Road Nursery children and their experiences with an owl and talking about flight. Using their quotes, illustrations and having them painting to the owl directly, we have created this finished piece.

About the artist The owl is a visual interpretation of the super powers of the art of flight. We worked with our children to explore flight, encountered real owls, cared for chicks, interacted with taxidermy and let the children lead the design process. Chris Lambert (aka @DoodleCrease) strarted ScrawlrBox, which provides a monthly box of pens, pencils, paint and any other mark makers to artists of all abilities, helping inspire that flow of creativity.
