Sketching at the Zoo with the Walt Disney Family Museum

Walt Disney’s True-Life Adventures (1948–60) documentary series, as featured in Gallery 8, educated a generation of viewers on the unique mannerisms of different animals and the wonders of our natural world. In the spirit of the True-Life Adventures—and in celebration of both the museum’s 10th Anniversary and the 90th Anniversary of the San Francisco Zoo—our two institutions have partnered for a unique experience. In this workshop, learn about the natural world and its inhabitants as you practice drawing zoo animals from live reference. Study the proportion, movement, texture, and gesture-drawing techniques used to gain a sense of an animal’s anatomy while breathing life into your sketches.
