The Walt Disney Family Museum Presents The Big Draw: Drawn to Life
The Walt Disney Family Museum
Join us at The Walt Disney Family Museum to celebrate the Big Draw, the world’s largest drawing festival! Our annual, museum-wide family event will take place this year on October 5th, 2019 and will celebrate Walt Disney’s contributions to the world of art and drawing.
In connection with this year’s “Drawn to Life” theme, experience special drawing sessions exploring nature-inspired art, create a care card for someone who needs a smile, learn how to draw Mickey Mouse, and more. Don’t miss special film screenings, then connect back to stories told in our main galleries and in our special exhibition, Mickey Mouse: From Walt to the World. In addition to offering free activities for all, the museum also offers free museum and special exhibition admission for guests 17 and under with paid adult admission.
This year, we are proud to partner with the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots. Founded by Goodall in 1991, Roots & Shoots is a youth service program for young people of all ages, whose mission is to foster respect and compassion for all living things, to promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs, and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for people, other animals, and the environment.
