Disney’s free online classes teach you to draw Mickey, Elsa, other popular characters

Although Disney World and Disneyland announced indefinite closings during the COVID-19 pandemic, Disney has found creative ways to connect with fans at home.

The company recently launched a series free drawing classes via the Disney Parks Youtube channel that you can view online right from the comfort of your couch.

It’s another great social distancing activity for art lovers who also love Disney.

All the classes are led by Disney character artists, and all you need to participate is paper and pencil. Most of the classes are 20 minutes or less.

These classes cover numerous popular animations including Mickey Mouse, Genie, Olaf, Elsa, Buzz Lightyear and Jack Skellington.

Disney fans have found other ways to experience the “Most Magical Place on Earth” even though they can’t visit the park.

Park-goers have been posting videos of virtual Disney rides for an at-home experience of popular attractions. Disney also recently released a virtual viewing of their newest Disneyland Park parade, Magic Happens.

With parents working from home and kids being home schooled, these activities are great ways to keep the household entertained.
