Last week my daughter and I went to EPCOT for the annual Festival of the Arts. It was a beautiful Florida day, sunny and warm. There are surprises everywhere, if you know where to look.
We strolled the park, viewing the displayed artwork. My favorite is the sidewalk chalk art. Here are a few.
I’m always in awe of people who can paint or sketch. Unlike me! We stumbled upon Animation Academy, which was a lot of fun. We were given a clipboard, paper and pencil. A Disney animator came out to give instructions on how to draw Jiminy Cricket. Sounds easy, right?
This is the finished product from the professional.
Here’s my interpretation.
So, does my guy look like Chip or Dale? We definitely got a chuckle from my picture. Guess I don’t follow directions well!
As always when my daughter and I get away for the day, I’m grateful that she still wants to hang out with me. We have plenty of laughs and usually eat too much, but it’s worth because the food is excellent. Next time, I’ll be ready to go head-to-head with the next animator and see if I can outdo the artist!
Until then, Her Surprise Hometown Match will be available on February 21. I’ll post more about the book, but in the meantime, visit www.tararandel for more information.
