The Animation Experience at Conservation Station to Offer Animal Villain Drawing Classes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Starting October 18th

Since the reawakening of Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom earlier this year, guests have been perfecting their drawing skills at The Animation Experience at Conservation Station. Until now, classes have focused on how to sketch some of the most iconic characters from Disney’s “The Lion King,” but soon we’ll all be able to add to our collection.

Right in time for the villainous season, Disney is introducing characters who find themselves as the antagonist in highly popular Disney films. While Scar and Ed from Disney’s “The Lion King” will remain as one of the six characters in rotation, beginning Oct. 18, you can put pencil to paper and learn to draw from Disney•Pixar: Bruce from “Finding Nemo” and Hopper from “A Bug’s Life”; ShereKhan from “The Jungle Book” and Tic Toc from “Peter Pan.”
