Santa Ana, September 14, 2007

OCCTAC Students, Family and Staff wish to say THANK YOU to our friends at Disneyland Resort.
We are very proud to have been invited to participate in Disneyland Resorts "Dream, Imagine, Create: The Art Of Disney Parks" exhibit at this summer's Laguna Beach's Festival of Arts.












It all started with a wonderful student art workshop under the instruction of Disney Artists Hal Lambert, Mada Leach and Howard O'Donnell who visited our center this spring.
Our students had a chance to learn more about animation art from the masters. We also enjoyed Disney cookies and our families were thrilled to receive family passes to the resorts in Anaheim.

Later, 12 student works were chosen to be part of the Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts as part of a special exhibit. Our students attended the grand opening on July 1st.
















It was an unforgettable experience for our young artists that we are sure will remain a part of their memories forever. The exhibit closed…
