Souvenir Friday- The Art Corner Club Disneyland Souvenir Patch

In the recent Van Eaton Disneyland auction was this souvenir patch from the Art Corner in Disneyland. The patch was listed as a prototype and as a cast member patch. However, I believe the patch was a souvenir piece that kids (and adults) could receive when purchasing the Art Corner animation kit. The kit includes a neat little card for the Art Corner Animation kit. As an owner of the kit, the artist could animate a scene and send it into the Walt Disney Studio to be filmed onto 8 mmm film. The patch could have been sent back with the filmed scene. The patch features a great design with Mickey Mouse in a beret and holding a paint brush. The patch measures 3 inches in diameter.

Here are a couple of pages from two different Disneyland merchandise catalogs showing the Art Corner Animation kit.

That animation kit is a really cool concept, especially in a day without home computers or stop-motion video cameras.
