Learning Center

Milt Kahl, one of Walt Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men and considered by some as the Michelangelo of animation, gave life to unforgettable characters like Pinocchio, Alice, Madam Mim, and Peter Pan. In fact, Kahl quickly became known for his impeccable and realistic design skills, especially when it came to his character’s hands. This standard came from Kahl’s belief that animators should continuously study the human form and master the foundations of solid drawing. Join us for this workshop where you will learn about shapes, anatomy basics, and line quality to illustrate traditional hands.

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