Join us for cocktails and hors d'oeurvres and watch the penguins from Mystic Aquarium paint in the Lyman Allyn Art Museum Studio!

The finished art will be included in the Dinotopia exhibition and is available for purchase. 

Penguin Paintings

How do the penguins paint? 

All of the African penguins are trained to stick out their feet, which allows the trainers to examine them regularly.

For painting projects, the trainer dabs non-toxic paint on the penguins' feet.

Canvas is laid on the floor. 

The penguin then sets off to paint.
