How to Draw Bugs Bunny: The Results

Okay, we didn't set a Guinness World Record for the largest art class held in one venue at the Chuck Jones Big Draw like we hoped to, but and it's big but (!), we did set a record for the largest Chuck Jones art lesson taught in one venue!  Along with Chuck Jones on video, the Center's very own teaching artist, Christopher Scardino, led a class of 122 artists, students, and adults, teaching them how to draw the iconic Warner Bros. character, Bugs Bunny.  After the class, participants were encouraged to take their new found talent and draw on the walls of the venue.  The results were so wonderful, so delightful, so well-done, that we just had to share.  As Chris said, "you are drawing your Bugs Bunny, it may not look exactly like Chuck's Bugs Bunny, but it is yours."

Volunteer Tommy Martinez, graphic designer and artist, quickly sketched out an awesome looking Bugs Bunny!  Love that bent ear, so characteristic of Chuck's assertion that character dictates expression.

Even the littlest among us had something to say about Bugs Bunny and expressed themselves visually with the same care and concentration you'd expect from a professional.  It was fantastic to watch!

And just before you left the venue, artist Anna Panover's interpretation of Bugs Bunny reminded you what season it really was.
