Welcome to the Chuck Jones

The Chuck Jones Council for Creativity is looking for a few good volunteers. Do you excel at community outreach? Are you a marketing and/or business maven? Do you know how to put on a great fundraiser? Are you passionate about promoting creativity in our children, our schools, our lives, and the world? Then join us, Tuesday, January 21, 2014 from 6 PM to 8 PM for an overview of the programs and goals of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, meet many of our current volunteers, a few of the members of Chuck's family, Board members, and see if we're what's been missing in your life.
Post Script: On November 24th after the lecture delivered by Marian Jones, Linda Jones Clough, and Craig Kausen (the family of Chuck Jones), the attendees gathered in the hall for an interactive workshop. The theme was "conveyances" and they had 30 minutes to construct. As you can see the results were spectacular. Why, you'd think adults were creative too!
Short, quick interview with Dan Scanlon, director of Pixar’s “Monsters University” in today’s L.A. Times. When asked what movie to he’d recommend to aspiring animators he said, “I watched a lot of Tex Avery and Chuck Jones cartoons growing up. They’re so clearly staged and beautifully directed, and the characters are so rich. That’s an accessible place to begin.”
