On Sunday, November 7th, the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity held an art program for 6 Orange County, California Girl Scout Troops (a total of 26 girls!) Our teaching artists (all volunteer) Jamie Sugarman and Elisa Hastings led the girls through several processes, one of which was "Litter-ally It's Art" where they created multi-dimensional sculptures from found and recycled objects.
Another part of the day was spent reversing colors in Chuck Jones artwork to create a new mood and to experience how color can affect one's emotional perspective.
Ms. Sugarman, a former Disney caricature artist, led a group of nine girls in a session where they decorated the windows of not only the Center, but also two adjacent businesses, the restaurant "Byblos" and the children's vintage clothing store, "Hope Chests."
All-in-all it was a great way to spend a Sunday!
