Having spent most of my life drawing at a second grade level, I really enjoyed the Animation Academy last winter. I sketched Goofy one day and Mickey the next. The few minutes spent in those lessons removed the self-imposed "you can't draw anything."
666: The Number Of The Beast
664: The Number Of The Bloke Next Door
It was a lot of fun. My brother and I drew Mickey. Mine turned out pretty good after I gave up on my first attempt and ripped the top paper off my drawing board in the middle of the quiet class. My brother's Mickey however is now referred to as "Unemployed Cheese-Puff Mickey." Good time.
I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

Re: Animation Academy
Must give this a go next time I'm in town. There is one opening up in HKDL this summer (i.e. June/July for those of us in the southern hemisphere), and it will be interesting to see how successful it is in that park.
Looks like lots of fun, and like all things Disney, that's the point isn't it?
