Avian Art Program

Looking for something fun to do on a Friday night? Why not try your hand at Avian Art, led by local artist Marilynn Thomas and hosted by Wild Birds Unlimited, Grosse Pointe Woods.

Class instructor 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! 

Aside from painting, Avian Art sessions feature delicious snacks including hummus, spinach pies, and meat pies from Emily's Delicatessen and pastries from SideStreet Diner. Guests 21 and up may also partake in wine and beer offerings from Woods Wholesale Wine. These classes make great gifts, whether it be the class itself or the finished painting given as a gift to a friend or loved one. Alternatively, many participants like to keep the paintings for themselves, as they are proud of their work! Former WBU 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." Besides, painting is a great way to relax, practice mindfulness, and get away from the hectic pace of our daily lives. All ages are welcome, so bring your kids or grandkids, bring a date, or come alone!
