Sceneries: See some works by Maurice Noble, animation background artist, layout designer and longtime collaborator of Chuck Jones. Create a vibrant landscape or cityscape on colored paper with oil pastels.

Composite Creatures: Is it rabbit, or is it a man? It is both! Look at some familiar and unfamiliar characters created by Chuck Jones. Design and draw your own composite creature on paper with colored pencils.
