Paint With A Seal

  • As part of our commitment to animal care, Mystic Aquarium’s seals have been taught to paint using a non-toxic product (much like children’s finger paints). Just like humans, animals benefit from a variety of stimuli. Painting with our animals is just one way that Mystic Aquarium helps ensure an enriching and stimulating environment! We are inviting our guests help too! During a seal painting session, trainers will introduce participants to one of the Aquarium’s resident seals and together this dynamic duo will create a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. It is a great opportunity to learn more about our local seal species and their habitat as well as ways guests can help with the conservation of marine mammals.
