The Walt Disney Family Museum is pleased to once again host The Big Draw, the world’s largest drawing festival, on October 8, 2016. The museum-wide family event will celebrate Walt Disney’s contributions to the world of art and drawing, and encourage visitors of all ages to participate, observe, and enjoy drawing and storytelling.

The 2016 Big Draw theme will be “STEAM Powered” with STEAM referring to the integration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math into the field of animation. As a part of his legacy, Walt Disney blended these five subject areas throughout his works—from working with sound engineers to create the first cartoon with synchronized sound, to encouraging The Walt Disney Studios’ technician Bill Garity in his development of the Multiplane Camera in 1937. Based on the principles of STEAM, Walt also developed a team of creatives known as Walt Disney Imagineering to help design and build Disneyland. The event’s STEAM initiatives will include drop-in activities, performances, and ticketed workshops to learn more about how STEAM is a significant component of both animation and storytelling.

The museum is pleased to announce a partnership with Honest® Tea in support of Big Draw. Honest Tea will provide free sample tastings and admission to the museum’s core galleries and Wish Upon a Star: The Art of Pinocchio for the first 40 family groups (or 120 visitors) who participate in Big Draw. Explore the evolution of character and animation itself—along with the importance of honesty—in this special exhibition.
