Paint your own animation cels of line-drawn scenes and characters inspired by Disney in ACMI's own Ink and Paint Workshop.
A playful activity for kids and kids at heart. Paint your own animation cels of line-drawn scenes and characters inspired by Walt Disney in ACMI's own ink and paint workshop. Drawing on the distinctive vibrant colours in classic Walt Disney films you can create your own colourful film-still to take home, or bring an animated sequence to life using digital tools to paint directly onto a filmstrip sequence Disney made the first cel animated feature film in their ink and paint department in 1937.
Modelling traditional and modern animation methods you can paint your own scene or character or both!Draw inspiration from the vibrant palette of Walt Disney's celebrated concept artist Mary Blair. Mary Blair joined Disney in the 1940's and became an artist championed by Walt for her modern and distinctive style and use of luminous colour on film. She created concept art for films including Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan.

A 3-day, hands-on creative and technical workshop for 10-14 year olds
To coincide with our Dreams Come True exhibition, show us where your allegiances lie. From Aladdin to Mary Poppins, Captain Hook to Cruella De Vil, who do you side with?
In this hands-on workshop, you will work in small groups to learn the basics of how to write, direct, act and edit a short liveaction film inspired by the mythic imaginations of Disney.
This workshop is for any budding filmmaker or yet-to-be-discovered hero, heroine or villain. Under the guidance of ACMI staff, you will pitch your ideas, script, storyboard, act, direct and operate a camera, film in ACMI and 'on location' around Federation Square. Then, cut together your film and even add a Disney-inspired soundtrack.
