About The Art of Disney•Pixar’s Brave

The rugged and mystical Highlands of Scotland set the stage for Disney•Pixar’s next feature film, Brave. In order to evoke the beauty and magic of this lush and moss-covered land, the Brave art team at Pixar Animation Studios put paint to canvas and fingers to computer keys to create the distinctive characters and stunning visuals that bring the amazing natural beauty to life in true Pixar fashion. Please join us for a presentation by Pixar veteran and Shading Art Director Tia Kratter as we uncover the secrets behind the art and design of Brave.

The presentation will last approximately 60 minutes, including audience questions.

BRAVE opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, June 22nd, 2012.
