In the galleries, students discover the importance of storytelling in animation by engaging in interactive activities focused on the concepts of character, setting, and plot. In the Learning Center, they will illustrate and animate a story using a zoetrope, a device that produces the illusion of motion in a sequence of drawings.
The Walt Disney Family Museum provides accommodating hands-on workshops for students with disabilities or learning differences. Our activities are customized to be inclusive by supporting visual impairments, mobility limitations, autism spectrum disorders, and more.
During The Magic of Storytelling: Zoetrope workshop, students can enhance their hand-drawn animation strips through a variety of sensory tools, including: scented markers, stickers, wax sticks, stamps, and more.
