|Paint With A Whale: $150 Non-Members, $140 Members|
As part of our commitment to enriching the lives of our animals, the beluga staff at Mystic Aquarium have taught our belugas to paint. Just like humans, animals benefit from various types of stimuli. Painting can help ensure an enriching and stimulating environment! Now for the first time, we are inviting our guests to be a part of this experience. During a beluga painting session, trainers will introduce you to the whales. It is a great opportunity to learn more about them, their habitat and conservation of the species.
The program starts with you choosing the colors you would like for your painting. The trainer will then place a specially crafted brush in the beluga’s mouth. You will hold the canvas while the artist is at work! After the painting is complete, you can take it home with you along with a professional photograph of your experience.
The Paint with a Whale program is approximately 40 minutes long and takes place May through October, with a limit of two people per session. Participants must be 13 years of age or older, and those under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who has paid to participate in the interaction.
Sessions are being booked through October. Click here to purchase tickets, or call Reservations at 860.572.5955 x520.
