We have just opened our new eBay store where you can bid on artworks and collectible items from such Disney luminaries as Andreas Deja, Richard Sherman, Pete Docter, and Glen Keane.

  • Designing Comics – Every Saturday May 16 – June 6: “From a young age, Walt Disney was interested in comics and sequential art. He drew comics for his school’s newspaper, The Voice, and since then, countless stories have been told using unique characters in situations ranging from the normal and mundane to grand adventures around the world. In this four-week course, we will explore the history and evolution of comics, and what makes this form of visual storytelling unique and versatile. Students will delve into techniques such as gesture and silhouette, page layout, and story pacing to design their own short comic from start to finish.”
