Avian Art Classes at WBU, GPW


Although we are sad to wish Marilynn farewell, our Avian Art leader will soon be moving and no longer hosting these wonderful events. Be sure to sign up for one or both of the following dates! We wish Marilynn all the best in her new home and thank her for enriching our lives and nurturing the artist in us. 

  • Baltimore Oriole, Sunday, March 22nd, 2020 at 4:30pm
  • American Goldfinch, Sunday, April 19th, 2020 at 4:30pm

Marilynn Thomas is a talented local artist who specializes in the watercolor medium. She holds a Bachelor of Art Education and Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University, and teaches classes at Macomb Community College. Her work is displayed locally in restaurants and community centers, as well as on her website (click here). Fortunately for us, Marilynn also happens to love birds, and enjoys painting them and teaching others to do the same. While teaching the class, she and store owner Rosann Kovalcik are always sure to sprinkle in some great bird facts!


Former employee Holly Babiarz says, "Many people come in not knowing anything about watercolor, and once they've learned the nuances of the art technique, it starts a new interest, and they want to continue doing it for themselves." 


Aside from painting, Avian Art sessions feature delicious snacks, and guests 21 and up may partake in wine or beer. All ages are welcome, so bring a friend or sign up for yourself!
