Stop by the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity this Saturday, February 9 for Drop In and Draw! You can grab a pencil and sketch a loveable Chuck Jones character, like Wile E. Coyote or Pepe Le Pew.

We've compiled some of Chuck's original sketchings all in one book! Not hot on drawing or coloring? How about crafting a Valentine's Day card? We'll provide some V-Day materials so you can create a card for your Valentine.Anh Tran, one our creative and artistic volunteers, will help guide you in finding your creativity!
