Join Bugs Bunny, Marvin the Martian, Wile E. Coyote & the Road Runner along w/all their friends for Saturday Morning Cartoons!... 'And have FUN drawing too! We'll watch & explore the magical world of Chuck Jones, legendary director & animator!The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity inspires joy and innovation in people of all ages, energizing them to transform their lives, their communities, and society as a whole. The best way to tap into the creative energy that dwells inside us is to trust our minds & hands, NOT overthink the process. Whether it's watching a cartoon or your child at play, we hold onto these moments through pictures, sounds & feelings, in which we store away as brilliant memories. Chuck Jones would do the same thing, only he would recall those memories and express them through his art. Chuck Jones cartoons & drawing!... 'And of course, FUN!
"I try never to talk down to a child, no matter how young, not because he might lose something by my doing so, but because a child's mind is like a bud. It will open, but not under the kind of liquid it often receives." - Chuck Jones
About Darrell J. Park
"Art opens up a whole new world of possibilities, once where there was a blank piece of paper, now exists a line...
Your line. A unique line that was brought into creation by you, the artist. This is your "world," where you can freely create & express yourself, find your own voice." - DJ Park
