Walt Disney animator, voice actor and writer Tim Hodge will be featured as a guest on Tuesday at the Spring Hill Public Library during its monthly STEAM program, which is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Hodge has been in the animation industry for over 30 years, and has worked on big-name films such as Disney’s “Mulan,” “The Lion King” and “Brother Bear.” Hodge has also worked extensively on the VeggieTales series, directing multiple episodes, as well as lending his voice talents to the VeggieTales theatrical movie.
Starting at 5:30 p.m., the event will see Hodge guide attendees step by step on how to draw some of Walt Disney’s most iconic characters, such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Mushu from “Mulan.” Materials will be provided at the event, Attendance to the event is free, though interested persons are encouraged to pre-register for the event. Online registration for the event may be done by clicking here.
While many have long viewed drawing as a skill one is either born with or is not, recent studies have suggested overwhelmingly that anyone can become a skilled artist – given they put in the required practice. So anyone with a passing interest in art will want to be sure to visit this free event, and see how professionals create their work, step by step.
