Every Disney themed experience is a fantastical expression of imagination and unfettered wonder. Each of these experiences, at its core, is due in large part to the vision and boundless creativity of the artists who designed them.

Workshop Overview

In this course, students will discover the role artists play in keeping our guests immersed in the various stories of our themed lands. In addition to learning the story behind some of these experiences, students will have the opportunity to visit the area and see it from the artist’s perspective by examining various creative elements such as forced perspective, use of color, architecture, and storytelling. Students will have the opportunity to design their own themed experiences by applying what they’ve learned.
