Paint with an Elephant

In partnership with Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Arts Month 2021 is excited to offer you (and up to three of your closest friends or family members) the amazing opportunity to paint with an elephant! In addition to your experience at the zoo, you’ll also get to take home a piece of original elephant art! One entry per email account, please.


NOTE: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo staff report that the elephants have the choice to participate or not, and they have seen that the elephants seem to enjoy the mental stimulation, fine motor skill exercises and personal interaction this activity provides.

The Cultural Office will select one (1) random winner at the end of Arts Month.
