Just steps away, you’ll find the mural to be painted. It’s divided up into sections to prevent crowding. A Cast Member will direct you to your designated section.

Once there, paint the squares with the number on your lid to help bring the mural to life! Guests are allowed to paint up to six squares.

When you’re done, you’ll get a souvenir bookmark-sized print of how the mural will look once completed. Typically, several murals will be painted over the course of the festival, making this something to visit again and again!

The 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts runs January 13 – February 20, 2023.

Editor’s note: A previous version of the article used the phrase “Masterpiece by Numbers” in the headline. This has been changed to avoid confusion. There is no association between the 2023 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts and a company that produces products by the name “Masterpiece by Numbers.”
