Visual Art

One of the key components to this festival is visual art. Guests can watch artists at work inside the Disney Artist Gallery or the WonderGround Gallery.

Guests can even purchase art pieces to take a little Disney magic home with them.

We often purchase Disney art pieces. One of our favorite Disney souvenirs is the watercolor images of the Disney Resorts we’ve stayed at.

Take your time as you walk throughout EPCOT so that you don’t miss seeing the Chalk Full of Characters displays which feature chalk drawings of some of your favorite Disney characters.

A great interactive visual art activity has guests filling in part of the Expression Section: A Paint by Number Mural. Once it is completed it will look like a Disney masterpiece!

Other fun visual art activities during EPCOT Festival of the Arts are learning to draw Disney Characters at Animation Academy or allowing kids to create their own work of art at Kid’s Chalk Art.

Figment’s Brush with the Masters’ Scavenger Hunt

If you have kids traveling with you to EPCOT, one activity they will enjoy is Figment’s Brush with the Masters’ Scavenger Hunt around the World Showcase.

For a fee, guests can purchase a map and stickers, that will take them on a hunt for Figment who is hiding inside famous works of art at each pavilion.

When guests complete the map, they can return the map to the park’s Disney Traders for an artful gift.
