Discover how Walt Disney encouraged his staff to experiment with special effects technology to make animation more compelling and realistic, and how the resulting advancements inspired the industry as a whole. Students will experiment with a miniature multiplane set up—focusing on design elements that will explore how depth is created in animation—then animate their own characters and props to create a silent stop-motion short film.
Please contact Natalie Chan, School and Outreach Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or to book your experience.
Virtual School Experiences will 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.
Admission waivers are available for Title I schools. We will send a Title I waiver at a later date.
