About This Class

fafd8d67

In this class I'll show you two different methods for making cute little bird sculptures like these as well as explaining a little about how I pick color schemes for them. I'll share "recipes" for making paper mache and show you how to turn the birds into ornaments that can hang from your Christmas tree or a nail in the wall.

Artist and Illustrator

I've worked as an artist and illustrator for many years although my academic training was in history and art history. I've illustrated over a 100 books, mostly how-tos on crafts and gardening. I also love to paint in watercolor and create collages as well as making papier mache birds, painting rocks, and creating paper jewelry. You can see some of my work at my Etsy store, Alisonsart as well as my website alisonkolesar.com.
