This class will teach students how to interpret the forms of birds and how to apply those skills to making realistic, needle-felted bird sculptures. This class explores one of my favorite group of birds, the vireos! (photo by Josh Houck)These delightful songbirds come in a variety of colors and live in a variety of habitats. Many of these vireos, while they seem different, still have the same basic facial patterns and overall color patterns. In this class, we will explore how different color combinations affect the look of a bird. Students will choose to make two of the following species: Black-capped Vireo, Yellow-throated Vireo, Blue-headed Vireo, White-eyed Vireo, Plumbeous Vireo, and Cassin's Vireo.
