Craig Kausen, President of the Board of Directors of Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, announced today that a newly designed interactive website for the Center will launch May 6, 2010. This new website came about through the Center's affiliation with Festival of Children Foundation who offered their members the opportunity to work (for free!) with students at the Art Institute of Southern California to either create a website for an organization from the ground-up or revamp an existing one.
Students at AISC get course credit for the project and have the opportunity for real-life experience working with a client. Did we mention that they're also brilliant? Well they are, and the Center could not be more grateful for their creativity (yes!) and thoughtful, professional attitude toward the project. Circle the date for the big reveal: Thursday, May 6, 2010!
