Are you a "Penguin Picasso" or "Vincent Van Goat"?  Pick up your paintbrush, put on your smock, and get your palettes ready for Virtual Paint Night with Brookfield Zoo.


This class will be broadcast from Pinot Palette in Naperville, but you get to sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home while you paint your Bumblebee Utopia. A recording of the class will be available for SEVEN following the live event.

Our artist will lead you step-by-step through the painting. The experience is completely interactive - you’ll be able to ask the artist questions throughout the event. Each painting kit will be mailed directly to you.

PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a virtual event, please disregard the seating request question when signing up.
