Scheduled for Sunday, August 7th at 2 PM sharp during the Chuck Jones Big Draw (11 AM to 5 PM) to be held at SOCO (South Coast Collection), 3303 Hyland Avenue, Costa Mesa, California, the Center will host a 45 minute drawing class during which participants will learn how to draw the star of Warner Bros. cartoons, Bugs Bunny. The cost is $25.00 each or $40.00 for a family (or group) of four. Tickets for the event are available through EventComplete.com.

“Attempting to break the recent record of 817 people at an art class held in Copenhagen, Denmark in June of this year will be an awesome feat and a great experience for everyone involved,” exclaimed Craig Kausen, Chairman of the Chuck Jones Center and the grandson of Chuck Jones. “I know that Chuck would have loved the idea of over 800 people all learning how to draw Bugs Bunny, at one time, at one location; in fact, I believe he would have loved leading the class himself!”
The Chuck Jones Big Draw is a fun-filled event that allows people of all ages and levels of artistic accomplishment to be nurtured and guided by the Center’s teaching artists in a non-judgmental environment. Intended as an exploration of each person’s creativity, the Chuck Jones Big Draw will allow participants to experience a personal journey filled with insight and joy.
