THE ART CORNER BY ARTISTIC TALENT GROUP

The Art Corner by Artistic Talent Group opened February 7, 2019 at Disney Springs in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The first brick and mortar store of its kind at Walt Disney World, The Art Corner brings together work from a variety of artists.

The Art Corner showcases talented artists producing original artwork including classic watercolor caricatures, hand-drawn names and artistic marbling. Caricatures have been a guest favorite at Walt Disney World for decades, and new, innovative digital caricatures offer an exciting twist on this beloved art form. Name Works, the popular provider of personalized artwork, now has a new location inside The Art Corner, complementing its other locations across Walt Disney World. Hand-drawn names are created and personalized with illustrations of guests’ favorite items, including select animated characters.

ART EXPERIENCES

CLASSIC CARICATURES

Classic Caricatures, a tried and true guest favorite, will be painted in watercolors.

DIGITAL CARICATURES

Digital Caricatures, a new and innovative twist on the classic art form will also be available. Instead of ink on paper, the caricature is created by the artist using a digital drawing tablet and stylus pen.

NAME WORKS

Name Works, an exclusive product of Artistic Talent Group, will join the offerings due to its success on Disney property. This unique art product provides guests with the ultimate in custom name personalization. Hand drawn names are embellished with illustrations of favorite items and can even include a personalized cartoon character.

ARTISTIC MARBLING

After a successful debut at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts in 2018, the interactive, hands-on artistic marbling activity is now included in The Art Corner. This customizable experience allows guests to learn the ancient art form of Suminigashi, working side-by-side with a professional artisan to create custom-made silk items. Each piece is designed with specific colors and patterns selected by participating guests.

COFFEE & CANVAS BY MIKEL

A unique “Coffee & Canvas” gallery by Steven Mikel, an artist from Coconut Creek, Fla., adds a touch of whimsy to the store. Focused on revealing the overlooked or unnoticed beauty tucked away in the details of the world around us, Mikel paints exclusively using different varieties of coffee – with each painting often requiring between 60 to 150 brewed cups. The “Coffee & Canvas” gallery helps define the unique niche this gallery/merchandise location brings to Disney Springs.

“Our goal is to continue Walt Disney’s vision of bringing smiles to the faces of every guest who visits our store, just as they do when they visit Walt Disney World Resort,” said Barbara and Keelan Parham, owners of Artistic Talent Group. “We are thrilled to open our doors and bring The Art Corner to life at Disney Springs!”
