Disney’s Master Teachers—Life Drawing For Animation: Sunday, 4/20/14; 12:30p.m. – 1:30p.m.; Room: 300DE

Disney has a long tradition (dating back to the 1930s) of running life drawing classes for its animators. The idea is that understanding and mastering actual anatomy improves animated drawings and gestures. Disney’s current master teachers – Karl Gnass, Mark McDonnell, and Bob Kato – will talk about their creative philosophies, approach to life drawing and gesture, how classical drawing translates to animation, and what animation studios look for in artists. Best of all, they’ll alert you to the classes they run for civilians. Disney visual development artist Dan Cooper will weigh in on how these classes have improved his animation skills. Moderated by Fast Company’s Sue Karlin.
