New Hampton commences partnership with the Walt Disney Museum in San Francisco, California.
In 2016, New Hampton implemented the pilot course “Animation with the Walt Disney Family Museum,” an exploration of animation techniques offered through the Art Department and co-taught by Art faculty and Disney educators. The success of the course has led to ongoing programs with the Walt Disney Family Museum, including a developing curriculum in animation and a summer camp. These challenging and exciting courses challenge students in visual principles, action analysis, physics, cinematography, acting, and storytelling. New Hampton School is proud to partner with the Disney Museum and is currently exploring ways of developing the relationship in launching an At-Risk Youth Animation Academy in San Francisco, CA.
