What Does Fun Look Like? Artist Mary Beth Volpini Has the Answer!

Artist and noted interior designer, Mary Beth Volpini, will be asking you that question at the Chuck Jones Big Draw on Sunday, August 7th from 11 AM to 5 PM at SoCo (South Coast Collection), 3303 Hyland Avenue, Costa Mesa, California.  A graduate of Parsons the New School for Design in New York City, Mary Beth has been creating art and designing homes in both California and New York for the last several years.  While fighting breast cancer in 2006, she was able to rediscover her love of painting and mixed media collage and will be sharing that love at the Chuck Jones Big Draw.  Start thinking about what your answer will be when she greets you this coming Sunday.  Be there or be square!  

Don't forget we're looking to break the Guinness World Record for the largest art class held in one venue which begins promptly at 2 PM–everyone will be learning how to draw Bugs Bunny!

The Inspiration Behind the Chuck Jones Big Draw

The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity will be presenting its second Chuck Jones Big Draw on Sunday, August 7th from 11 AM to 5 PM at SOCO (South Coast Collection), 3303 Hyland Avenue, Costa Mesa, CA 92626.  Loads of fun art projects for the whole family — parents don't be shy, we want to inspire your creativity too! — drawing, painting, murals, performance art, collage and sculpture.  Each station will be lovingly nurtured by the Center's teaching artists.  At 2 PM that afternoon we hope to beat the world record of 809 people at an art class led by one instructor all in one location set in 2004 in Germany.  Come help us set a new record.  Ticket information at EventComplete.com.  

Here's Craig Kausen, Chuck's grandson, talking about the inspiration behind the Chuck Jones Big Draw:
