  • Great job Heather! Always enjoy your classes!

  • Thank you all so much for watching and for your sweet comments. It’s great creating magical moments for our guests every day. We are happy to help at the Animation Academy. Also, Thank you so much to Jennifer and the amazing crew that helped put this together. Y’all were wonderful!

  • Back in 2009, Heather drew Ray during my animation class and gave me her drawing at the end! The Princess and the Frog is one of my favorite Disney movies and this was truly a magical moment for me! Thanks Heather! :)

  • I DID IT! Thanks, Heather, and thanks Disney Parks Blogs for sharing.

  • Trying to take a photo or video of a lightning bug has proved almost impossible with my lack of setting the camera to take the photo as soon as they shine their light.
    I think this instructional video of how to draw “Ray” my favorite firefly, might be more my pace, in fact I’m sure Evangeline would agree that it’s in the “stars” for me to try!

  • Now I have to go break out the colored pencils! Love the longer YouTube videos Disney! Yay!
