Animal Encounter: Paint with the Seals

The New England Aquarium's Paint with the Seals experience takes place behind the scenes in the seal exhibit. While you are there, participants in each painting session will be invited into the Atlantic harbor seal exhibit to learn about this intelligent local species while working side-by-side with a trainer. As part of the day's exercises, your seal will paint a masterpiece using a specially adapted brush and three colors of your choosing. The seals at the Aquarium create colorful paintings with a couple flicks of their head or flipper.
