On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, (April 13th-15th), the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity hosted a booth full of activities, artwork, and character galore at the Orange County Youth Expo’s Vital Link’s STEM & DMA Showcase 2012 (Science Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Digital Media Arts). Chuck Jones Center’s head teaching artist, Chris Scardino beautifully spearheaded the presentation and programs at the event.
One of the masterful by-products of this 3-day endeavor was this inspired work created by dozens of participants (young and young-at-heart) throughout the weekend. This turned out be a truly inspired, imaginative, and collaborative event!
We heard from other attendees that the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity's booth was filled with participants every single day of the event. And although there were robots, video games, science projects, and other 'high tech' booths to explore, our simple booth--filled with paper and pencils--elicited the most positive response from the children (and some of the adults.)
