In the galleries, Scouts will learn how foundational drawing was in the creation of Walt Disney’s many animated films. Then, in the Learning Center, they will experiment with different materials and practice various visual effects, such as stippling, crosshatching, and smudging. After drafting original concept art, backgrounds, and cartoon characters, Scouts will then showcase their work for other attendees during a group critique.
