Bird is FANTASTIC teacher! She knows her stuff, but knows how to meet the individual student where they're at. She taught me so much about my own creativity and potential by equipping me with new knowledge, but also helping me tap into the skills I already have. She has the instructional skills of a teacher and the knowledge and craft of an artist. You will walk away from time spent with Bird having learned something meaningful about yourself as an artist and a person, 100%.
