CAN YOUR FAMILY COME OUT AND PLAY?

Play It Forward, a Fundraiser for Creativity

Benefitting the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity

Costa Mesa, CA: “It looks like you’re having fun,” was one of the highest compliments given by famed artist, author, and educator, Don Graham, to his students when the work they were doing showed promise. Having fun is an important part of creative endeavors at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. “Play It Forward, a Fundraiser for Creativity—will benefit the programs of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a 501(c)3 public charity,” says Craig Kausen, Chairman of the Board and grandson of Chuck Jones, “everyone remembers knocking on your best friend’s door and asking, ‘can Johnny come out and play’. That’s exactly what Play It Forward is for, having fun and playing, while paying it forward.”

A carnival atmosphere will pervade this family-friendly event where you and your children will be able to participate in creativity stations throughout the 6000 square foot Center. There will be mask-making, musical instrument-making, rock painting, wire art, lyric-writing, toy-making, animation light-table drawing, and a Foley station where you’ll be able to lay down a sound track for a short student-produced animated cartoon.

AND! You’ll be able to collaborate on your very own stop-motion animated short cartoon, filming the action against a giant background using some of Chuck Jones’s favorite characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and the Road Runner.  

Play It Forward, a Fundraiser for Creativity, will be open from 1 to 4 PM on Sunday, October 16 at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, 3321 Hyland Ave., Suite A & B, Costa Mesa, Ca. Tickets are $50 per family, regardless of the number of members, and will include carnival food such as popcorn, cotton candy, and soft drinks. Plus, there’ll be live music provided by Music Vault Academy! Tickets available at PIF4Creativity.org
