Studio Series: Animating Flight

Ages 7‑17
Sat, Aug 18 | 1–2:30pm
Learning Center

Eric Larson, one of Walt Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men, was the animator behind the some of Disney’s most memorable flight sequences. From the graceful Pegasus in Fantasia (1940), to Peter and the Darling children soaring over London in Peter Pan (1953), Larson had the impeccable ability to animate any creature, making them believable, with the proper physicality and personality. Join us for this workshop where you will learn about basic animation principles such as arcs, exaggeration, and weight in order to animate a character in flight.

This program is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men: Masters of Animation.
