If you are referring to the one in DHS it is sadly gone...I miss it too!! For a while they still had an animation class in Disney Quest, but now that is gone as well. If you are a DVC member there is an animation class at Wilderness Lodge.
Oops sorry--I just realized you said AoA!

I'm hoping to try the Animation Academy on our trip to WDW next week, but can't find a schedule or any reference to it from an official WDW source. Did I miss my chance?

The drawing classes were still being held when we were at AoA in June. They were in an area at the far end (closest to luggage services) of the check-in counters/stations. Classes were held at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily. I've always had a hard time finding anything in writing (from Disney) about the classes. I can tell you that when we were checking in at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday morning in June, the seating area was already full (20ish people).
UPDATE: I called Disney once and they said no, but I tried again and got a confirmation that they are still happening. Still at 11, 2, and 5 in the lobby/cartoons area of AoA lobby. I went out twice on my August trip. First time we drew Mickey, second time Minnie.
I actually struck up a friendship with Jason, the CM who leads these every day but Monday and Tuesday. He's a chatter and has a former CM friend living in my hometown, so we found a lot to gab about after the class. Fun guy!
