Disney Youth Education Workshops
Each summer our academy travels to Disney World with a group of our students
Each student takes part in exclusive Disney Youth Education Series workshops
Each morning students will learn a variety of new skills in animation, innovation, marketing and branding, teamwork and more -directly from Disney’s instructors. These workshops are exclusive and offered through our academy. All workshops are chaperoned by Façade Staff
Memories are made, dreams are reached and imaginations are stretched to their limits in an expressive week of education at the sunny Disney World,Orlando, Florida. Definitely the trip of a lifetime!
Each day the students will gain knowledge in the classroom and then explore the parks and Disney grounds together with their families to see how the skills and techniques instructed are put to practice.
THE GRAND FINALE!! At the end of this adventurous week, certificates are presented to the students for completing their Disney workshops at a surprise Disney Grad Party. (The Grad Party is a spectacle in itself-we work with the Disney team to put on quite the show)
The certificates will be a huge asset to their resumes and portfolios.
The experience provides a competitive edge for all students as they pursue their next steps towards their bright futures as artists, architects, graphic designers, animators, and so many more creative professions.

“What interested us in the Disney experience was the opportunity to explore different areas of creativity through the eyes of a company devoted to bringing happiness and joy to every person stepping into Disney. From the people working the parks, the visuals that are everywhere, to the costumes, shows, and technicals and fireworks. Every time one gets an opportunity to expand their knowledge on things they are interested in, it adds to their own imagination and creativity. This Disney workshop opened up my daughter’s mind to new ideas, which is very exciting for her. I feel the workshop has given my daughter such a great opportunity not just now, but in her future as well. Facade did an amazing job with co-ordinating and planning each day. They were professional and enthusiastic about everything.”

“In my opinion, it was a good opportunity for me and I recommend it to other young artists who want to further perfect their skills in a variety of different styles. The Disney art course was an amazing trip that taught me the fundamentals to a wide range of experiences. I definitely encourage this to all ages of artists.”
Adrienna Sousa, Student
“When we first heard about the Disney Youth Series, we thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to combine a learning experience and a family vacation. The Disney Youth Series introduced us to many new creative ways of thinking. It was a fun-filled, hands-on, activity-based curriculum that got everyone involved. The five-day program enhanced our knowledge on the evolution of technology, taught us about various cultures and gave us the opportunity of drawing from life. We would definitely recommend this program to others because we bonded as a family and created memories that will last forever. This was our first time going to Disney and joining Façade on this trip made our experience even more spectacular! It’s definitely a trip of a lifetime!”

Matthew Conte, Student
” The Disney trip was a very rare opportunity for my daughter. Although we have been to Disney World before, it felt like the first time all over again. The workshops they experienced were very unique and interesting. It’s hard to find workshops like these anywhere else. This trip was definitely a memory of a lifetime.”
