Disney Artist Met with Art and New Media Students



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

Hernandez began his association with Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1996 as an in-betweener on “Fantasia/2000” and has been a character designer and story artist for Disneytoon Studios since 2004.

He talked about his experience as a professional artist and critiqued students' work.
