Classes & Workshops

Whether you prefer instructor-led workshops or more open-ended creative exploration, The Walt Disney Family Museum has something for you!


Our workshops are hands-on learning experiences led by industry professionals that teach the skills and techniques used by master practitioners. With classes capped at 25 students or less, these workshops create an intimate atmosphere for participants, encouraging in-depth explorations of art and animation. Previous workshops have covered such subjects such as costume design, music composition, and character development. Check our calendar for current schedule and information.

Open Studio

Every Sat & Sun | 10am–noon | FREE for members or with paid museum admission

Visitors of all ages are invited to get hands-on at our drop-in Open Studio. On the first two weekends of each month, we’ll explore creative processes drawn from the exhibitions on view in our galleries. Activities range from stop motion animation to creative storytelling and inking and painting animation cels. Get inspired, get creative!

Little Open Studio

Every Sat, Sun & Mon | 1–4pm | FREE for members or with paid museum admission

Intended for ages 7 and under, Little Open Studio is the place where little ones and their families will first enjoy storytime, then put their little hands to work in creating artwork inspired by the story they just heard.
