In the galleries, students discover how Walt encouraged his staff to experiment with special effects to make animation more interesting and realistic, and how the resulting advancements in technology enhanced Disney animation and inspired the industry as a whole. In the Learning Center, students experiment with a Multiplane Camera, explore how depth is created in animation, and create their own digital short films.

Registration for the 2017-2018 academic year begins on August 1, 2017. Please email if you have any questions.
