Character plaster is produces the hard finishes in the Walt Disney Parks that mimic other materials. This includes rockwork, themed paving, wood and facades.
In January, the class traveled to Walt Disney World where they were exposed to character plaster techniques and met with artists from Walt Disney Imagineering. These experts lead the class in workshops and took the students exploring in Animal Kingdom to see in-process and completed examples of large scale character plaster projects. Irene, a BA student in Studio Art, expressed that “if I could go back, I would. Everyone was eager to make us feel welcomed and thoroughly answered all of our questions with smiles on their faces. This was my ultimate once-in-a-lifetime experience”. Craig, an MFA student in the course, further explains, “I had never been to Disney world or really had an expectation for ‘character plasterization’ but WDI quickly changed my opinion. Beyond the simulation of cartoon depictions and fantasy, Disney has extensively developed their parks by utilizing both technology and artisans, creating vivid and comparable real world environments that successfully suspend disbelief”.

Throughout the semester, students will work toward building full-scale pieces and guest artists from Disney Imagineering will critique students’ works. Emma, a BA in Theatre, describes:

Going to Disney and meeting the Imagineers was a great experience. It’s a really amazing that we’ve been given the opportunity to learn from them and I’m looking forward the rest of the semester.


Working closely with the Disney Imagineers allows the students to gain a real-world perspective of character plaster. Mike, a BFA student in Studio Art, reflected that it “was insightful and inspiring to walk these parks with some of their creative designers. Seeing these creators and the pride that they have for their works, from current projects to ones completed many years ago, is something I believe every artist should have. It is great to be able to learn from an artist such Zsolt in a hands on environment, I am thankful for this chance”. Shawn, a BA in Studio Art, summarizes the experience as:

Working with the Disney Imagineer’s has provided a fantastic opportunity to network with and learn the best practices of a global industry leader. I believe that this kind of real world exposure in a classroom environment is very beneficial for the success of students in future endeavors. I am very appreciative to Disney and the FSU College of Visual Arts and Theater for taking the time and funds to invest in students by providing genuine learning experience

[7-Days-2014-1]<http://fsu.us6.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=9b2b5916c047e5b87c6e45382&id=b632ba09dd&e=6ba4075cf0>

Guest Curator Carolyn Henne, Chair of the Department of Art at Florida State University,  states that: “In the uncertainty of Now, we look to the future. What is the future of making? And how are we shaping its course? Making Now: Open for Exchange examines this future, but it starts with the pronoun we. How are WE shaping the future? Through new and old technologies, the shift really becomes a movement from central authorship to collective investment. WE make experiences together, and these experiences build towards a creative vision. . . .That vision is not singular, it doesn’t claim a single voice, instead the vision is multiple like a 3D printer that takes tiny particles and builds them together from a thousand perspectives.” The Opening Reception is Friday, February 14th 6-8pm. The museum will be closed Spring Break, March 9-17 except for arranged tours (644-1299).


Visiting Artist John Ensor Parker will be giving a lecture on February 13th at 7pm in room 249 of the Fine Arts Building. John is a Brooklyn based curator, painter and new media artist whose work draws upon both analytical and primitive processes. In addition to gallery exhibitions, his large-scale public art pieces include: “To the People of Orlando” a city block long permanent public art installation, mapping projections on the façade of The New Museum and Manhattan Bridge Anchorage. He was a visiting artist and instructor of Art & Science at Eugene Lang College | The New School for Liberal Studies. Current projects include “Mixed Botany”, a public art commission for a series of large-scale interactive light sculptures at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and a solo exhibition at Galeria Carles Taché in Barcelona.
