Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is a gymnasium for the creative brain.

We teach our students, both young and young of heart, to nurture the creative genius that exists in all of us. We connect both left and right sides of the brain in exercising creativity to solve problems, foster innovation and build mental health.

We build important skills for school age children, support healthy cognitive abilities for seniors, increase work performance in organizations who see the value of pumping up creativity in their ranks and enhance funcition for children on the autism spectrum.

Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity located in Orange County, California.  Founded in 1999 by the four-time Academy Award recipient and legendary animation creator and director, Chuck Jones, the Center's vision is a world where creativity is known and experienced in every discipline, by the many, not just the few.

These are important goals, particularly in today's world, when arts education is practically non-existent; we are dedicated to re-invigorating the creative spirit and we are doing it through art classes, exhibitions, lectures, film festivals, and our online community, all of which spring from the material in the Chuck Jones archive.  Jones was a determined saver and his writings, art, and other ephemera from a nine-decade life, along with his philosophy of guiding and nurturing instruction, form the basis of our programs.  

Our growing creative community inspires joy and innovation in people of all ages, energizing them to transform their lives, their communities, and society as a whole.
