Background design is an important part of the storytelling process as it helps give context to the narrative by showing the world in which the characters live. Although not the main focus, backgrounds can amplify and fully immerse a viewer. In this School Experience, we will discuss industry standard practices as students delve into perspective fundamentals, overlap, depth, and atmospheric perspective, and apply these concepts to design a layered background.

Please contact Natalie Chan, School and Outreach Coordinator, at nchan@wdfmuseum.org for any questions or to book your experience.

Virtual School Experiences occur online through Zoom. Students are required to have an internet connection, camera, and microphone in order to communicate with the class.

Virtual and On-site School Experiences

Our new Virtual and On-site Workshop offerings are activity-based, and available in either a one- or two-hour class. The two-hour session is more comprehensive and allows students more time to work on their projects.

Guided School Experiences combine a gallery tour and one of our hands-on workshops, allowing students to be creative while exploring Walt Disney’s life and work in meaningful ways. School Experiences appeal to a variety of learning styles and align with the Common Core State Standards.
