Animation academy gone from 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?

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.
Good luck

Oops sorry--I just realized you said AoA!

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).

This is super sad.
Such a great experience.

We tried to do it every time.
Even saw an engagement that the CMs helped pull off there once.
