RINGLING COLLEGE VISIT
While in Florida, we headed over to Sarasota to visit the Ringling College of Art & Design campus! Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, they weren’t conducting official college tours … so we called ahead and were told we could do our own walking tour, but we wouldn’t be able to go inside any buildings. While we were there, we were approached by security and we told him what we were up to … once he found out I was an alumni, he asked us “What’s the one thing you wish you could see?” so we told him Computer Animation, and he gave us a private tour of the Computer Animation department! Yay! We were so thankful!
The one really cool thing was the traditional animation desks were actual ones used in Disney – when they went all digital, they donated the desks to Ringling. How cool is that?
