Students tour the main museum galleries in search of unique hand-drawn special effects in Disney classics from 1937 to 1966, discussing The Walt Disney Studios’ many technological innovations, like the Multiplane Camera that brought new dimensions to Walt’s stories. In the Learning Center, students are challenged to hand-draw an animated water scene, complete with dramatic splashes, drips, and ripples.
