Art and new media students from Kalamazoo Valley Community College have the opportunity to participate in a workshop with Walt Disney Animation Imagineer, Art Hernandez, who will be at the Air Zoo on August 3 to promote the Aug. 9 opening of the Disney movie “Planes.”

He will speak with Kalamazoo Valley students in the Air Zoo’s mezzanine classrooms from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 3, talking about career paths and professional tips, and conducting a mini drawing session. Students will be encouraged to draw along with him by bringing their own sketchpads, pencils, or iPads.
