Learning Center

Frank Thomas, one of Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men, was a brilliant animator when it came to conveying the inner emotions of a character. He masterfully harnessed the snobbish personalities and complex mood swings of various Disney villains like Lady Tremaine from Cinderella (1950), the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland (1951) and Captain Hook from Peter Pan (1953). Thomas dramatized each character’s personality by combining a variety of small gestures and grandeur movements. Join us in this workshop, in which you will create your own villain and incorporate design fundamentals like shape language, posture, and silhouette.
