The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity presents a free program, Drop In & Draw! Held every third Saturday of the month from 10 AM to noon at the Center in South Coast Collection (SoCo). Each month a cartoon character from the fertile imagination of our namesake, Chuck Jones, one of the fathers of Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner, will be our theme. Good for ages 5 + with four activity stations that feature coloring sheets for the little ones, model sheets on light tables, step-by-step instruction on how to draw the character, and a construction project.
January will feature Bugs Bunny, followed by (in order): Daffy Duck (February), Marvin Martian (March), White Seal (April), Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner (May). One of our teaching artists will be on hand at each Drop In & Draw along with our knowledgeable and creative volunteers.
