Join us for one or both days of this art and wildlife adventure! Attending both programs is optional, and each is sold separately.

Day 1 will be presented at Mia, where students will check out artwork in the galleries focused on the wildlife and habitats found in Minnesota. In addition to the tour, we will meet with a naturalist from the Minnesota Zoo and learn some drawing techniques while viewing live animals.
Register for Day 1 of the program: artsmia.org/youthstudio. Registration opens on February 12.

Day 2 of the adventure will take place at the Minnesota Zoo. Celebrate Earth Day by exploring the Zoo and discovering some of the endangered species that call the Minnesota Zoo home. Then learn some drawing techniques from a Mia artist while observing animals in their habitats.
