Our first “long-form” Epcot International Festival of the Arts-inspired live stream is about to begin!
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is in full swing here at the Walt Disney World Resort – and Disney Artist Will Gay is just one of the amazingly talented artists featured at this year’s event.
In case you aren’t familiar with Will’s “Sketches in the Park” series here on the blog, Will regularly visits a Disney theme park early in the morning to sketch or paint “plein air,” which in the art world means creating art straight from the field. He then shares his original work with us in his series on the first Friday of each month.
In honor of this year’s Epcot International Festival of the Arts, Will has graciously allowed our #DisneyParksLIVE cameras to follow him on his next plein air adventure at Epcot, which we’ll stream live here on the Disney Parks Blog on Thursday, February 1.
The live stream will begin Thursday at 7:30 a.m. ET. Unlike other #DisneyParksLIVE streams, this will be our first “long-form” live stream, meaning you can pop in and out to see how Will progresses in his painting throughout the morning, from blank canvas to finished piece. Viewers will also be able to download this original piece as a digital wallpaper later in the day.
To view the live stream, simply bookmark this page OR visit the Disney Parks Blog on Thursday morning. The live stream will be at the top of the site.
