To create the realistic characters of Bambi, Walt Disney brought his artists living animals to study and draw direct from life. In that tradition, we're bringing in live animal models—goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, pot belly pigs and more—to provide you with the unique opportunity to observe and sketch them, just as the Disney artists do. Don’t miss this special drawing session on Saturday, June 25, from 10AM–12PM (weather permitting), to join an artist on our front lawn, and bring the inspiration of live animal models to your own illustrations!
Afterwards, join us in the Theater at 3PM to hear from noted author and historian, J.B. Kaufman, about the groundbreaking visual style and evolution of the classic Disney film Bambi, where he will discuss the anatomy of an animal and how the film was animated! Tickets can be purchased online at waltdisney.org. Hope to see you here!
