Animal Encounters

Pig-Casso Paint Program

At the Pig-Casso Painting Party, children watch as our resident guinea hog reveals her artistic side. You will learn how zookeepers train animals, and why training is an important practice in zoos. Put paint to canvas as you create your own personal piece of art. There is a catch… you will have to paint like Madame Mazell. Look mom, no hands! This is a snouts-only art class; when you paint like a pig you can really go hog-wild!

What to bring: camera, bug spray and water

Meeting place: At the "Pig-Casso Paint Program Meets Here" sign in the Animal Forest, just past the Bear Habitat

Price: $10.00 per participant plus park admission. No more than 5 participants per session.
