In this six-part class, learn to draw and paint birds realistically using drawing and watercolor. Visit works in the Collection and A Telling Instinct to discover how birds have been used symbolically and metaphorically throughout history, then create your own visual interpretation in a variety of media to express what birds mean to you.

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
