The Ugly Duckling

In my lesson on “Swans,” I found the old Disney animated story “The Ugly Duckling” on YouTube …..complete….made in 1939. Each cell was made by an individual artist. Wow! What expert use of atmospheric perspective and all the elements and principals of art! Check it out! It is like going to look at a piece of animation history!

A great additional lesson would be after doing my Swan lesson would be to have kids draw a cell from the story and create words to go with it, or even create their very own flipbook. See HERE for instructions on how to create your own flipbook!
