Join Marty Sklar and support Ryman Arts

I’ve just been notified about an upcoming very special event to be held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. You get to spend an evening with Disney Legend Marty Sklar and Ryman Arts gets to continue its mission of teaching teens essential skills for art and life in a rigorous, nurturing studio environment.

The event is Saturday, December 12th, and tickets are limited. I truly think any Disney fanatic would find Marty’s presentation to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Full details below the jump:

Herbert Dickens Ryman: An Artist’s Journey to Walt’s and Other Worlds

Presented by Marty Sklar, Disney Legend and former Executive Vice President and Imagineering Ambassador

Join Marty on a journey through the life and legacy of Herb Ryman and the establishment of Ryman Arts, founded in his honor by six friends, including Walt’s daughter Sharon Disney Lund and Marty and Leah Sklar. Herbert D. Ryman (1910-1989) created the first overall illustration of Disneyland, drawing as Walt Disney described his dream for a new kind of family entertainment, and continued to work on every Disney theme park until he died in 1989. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to listen to Marty speak about and show Herb Ryman’s contributions to key milestones in the history of The Walt Disney Company, including the story of the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle, and Herb’s world travels, including his amazing paintings of people and places.
