Brushes & Birds: Create a Masterpiece with the Aviary

You are invited to virtually attend the National Aviary’s live online series, Brushes & Birds, to create your own masterpiece! Pick up a paint brush and learn how to paint a portrait via Zoom under the direction of local artist Maria DeSimone Prascak of Maria’s Ideas.

The next session of Brushes & Birds will be held virtually on Saturday, April 17 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Each session features a behind-the-scenes look into a specific animal species to help inspire your portrait. This month, you will be learning how to paint a Bat.

For more information, or to purchase your ticket and art supplies, visit the Brushes & Birds event page. Space is limited. Beginners are welcome. Participants are able to work at their own skill level – with no experience necessary.
