Animation class: Pluto

I’ve always wanted to go to the Animation Academy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The problem is, no one else in my family has any interest in this drawing class.

On day four, while everyone else was busy with their own activities, I slipped away to the Animator’s Palate to learn to draw Pluto.

Have you ever taken a Disney animation class? If not, I’d recommend it!

  1. How wonderful that you were able to try something new that you’ve always wanted to do! We’re all about learning new things, of course. We have a post on the Magic of Disney Animation at Hollywood Studios if anyone wants to check it out!

      Thanks for your comment! We’re currently using the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain in our homeschool, so animation class fits in nicely 🙂
