Virtual Educational Programs

Animal Painting Enrichment Sessions

Did you know the Aquarium of Niagara has artists-in-residence? They are covered in either fur or feathers and can either wield a paintbrush with their mouths or waddle their way to a masterpiece.

Join us online to see how they create their masterpieces and learn the benefits of allowing them to express themselves.

This is a virtual program that takes place with other online participants.

Our staff will describe the process and be able to answer your questions while you watch the artists at work.
