Most of us think the green tree ant a nasty little pest with a stinging bite. Local artist Olivia Azzopardi knows otherwise.

In her first exhibition, Memory Bird at the Tanks in 2014, Olivia Azzopardi changed our hearts about the humble scrub turkey. This time we learn to love the green tree ant for its social qualities, the way a colony survives by nurture, cooperation and a vast cache of evolutionary knowledge and skill.

Olivia will be drawing from nature in Tank 4 on Saturdays. Join her and try your hand with her favourite materials: ink, watercolour and paper.
