What would a Festival of the Arts be without a few Artists? You will be happy to know that you can attend Artist meet-and-greets complete with artwork signings, Art of Disney tents featuring original art and art reproductions, as well as Disney Artists painting Live. We were happy to discover that Disney Artists and Visiting Artists are now appearing at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
Disney Artist Greg McCullough was on hand to meet-and-greet guests. He was also available for signing any artwork purchased while he was on site. Greg’s artistic style is absolutely wonderful and he is also very easy to talk to. He will share tips with aspiring artists and fellow guests were surprised when we told them that he was there and would sign the art piece they were purchasing.
Disney Artist Brian Blackmore was also on site meeting guests and signing his artwork. He was located near the Mexico Pavilion. He had on a t-shirt printed with one of his awesome pieces of art; Mickey Mouse in a telephone booth.
Rob Kaz, Disney Fine Art Artist, was also available for meet-and-greets. He is likely best known for his Beauregard the Frog character who appears somewhere in every single painting that Rob paints. Beauregard is very whimsical and Rob’s artwork is wonderful.
Art merchandise tents were also strategically placed around the World Showcase. The tent featuring the Star Wars artwork by Kim Grommol was quite popular. If you enjoy Disney artwork you must check out the art displays featured in the merchandise tents.
The Fairy House Ladies had their own tent. You may be most familiar with their work as seen in displays during past Epcot International Flower and Garden Festivals. They assured us that they have connections with Tinkerbell and therefore the design of their Fairy Houses are approved by her.
If you like the Toms shoes with the hand-painted Disney designs on them then you must stop by the Toms tent. The Visitng Artists team is available to paint your shoes per your request. After you purchase your shoes and pick your design, one of the team members will give you a time to return and pick up your completed shoes.
Disney Fine Art Artist Rodel Gonzalez was painting Live outside of his Art Merchandise tent.
