About Course

Would you like to create a bird like this? If you love birds and being creative, you will love this course. In this course we will be creating our own spirit bird. What is a spirit bird? It is any type of winged creature that inspires you or you feel connected with.

You don’t have to be an artist or even be good at making beautiful things. I will teach you the skills you need to make something you will love and feel good about. We will be working in mixed media, which means we will explore more than one type of art supply and various materials. I will also teach you step by step and help you through the process.

You have a choice to paint this exact bird along with me or go along following the same steps choosing your type spirit bird. Either way works great!

We will use paint, colored pencils, beautiful papers, collage elements, real gold ink and so much more! A supplies list is waiting for you.

This class was amazing. Aunia’s videos are beautifully put together, the instruction is easy to follow, and the final product is surprising! I never thought I could create something like this. I look forward to watching through this class again to put other spirit bird pieces together!
