Family Monkey Paint Party with BB Designs

May 16, 2020


Monkey See, Monkey Do, we can’t wait to paint with you!

The Utica Zoo has partnered with BB Designs to bring you a family paint night! We will be creating a family of monkeys together, unique to your family! Each family member will be able to paint their own monkey and you will be able to connect all the paintings together by a unifying branch ( all ages are welcome, recommended for ages 6 and up, parents may have to assist younger children).

No experience necessary, below you will find a list of recommended supplies needed to be prepared for paint session! So just register at the Eventbrite link and wait for your zoom link, gather your supplies, and be ready for some fun!
