Brushes and Birds


Flock to the National Aviary each season, pick up a paint brush, and create your own masterpiece! Learn how to paint a portrait with a live bird present under the direction of local artist Maria DeSimone Prascak of Maria's Ideas; MariasIdeas.com.


New National Aviary seasons feature a host of changing daily activities and opportunities to get close to beautiful birds in immersive habitats. Now, they'll also feature new portrait sessions! Every session features a different live bird: can you guess which ones?!


Stay tuned for New Season announcements; we'll also unveil the upcoming portrait you'll craft and take home! Make sure you follow National Aviary's social media accounts and aviary.org for announcements and details.


Each session is $45 per canvas, includes light refreshments, and runs from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm inside of the National Aviary's Learning Center. All painting materials are provided. Beginners are welcome!
