Art College Illustration Instructor Caleigh Bird

Caleigh Bird BA, MA

Caleigh Bird received both her Bachelor’s and her Master’s degrees in Studio Art, focusing on figurative realism in oil, with a minor in Art History from her hometown at the College of Charleston and then at the University of South Carolina. She also studied classical fine art techniques at two different atelier programs in France and Italy. She has publicly exhibited her paintings for over ten years.

Caleigh’s artwork focuses on celebrating the beauty of the natural world by painting the people and plants she encounters in her daily life. She has always been drawn to teaching and loves nothing more than witnessing the spark of comprehension in her students’ eyes while watching them develop and grow. When Caleigh is able to break away from her studio, you can find her hiking, camping, adventuring, and van-life traveling to all kinds of enchanting places with her sketchbook and hula hoop in tow.
