Pink Donuts + the Chuck Jones Big Draw

You might ask yourself what pink donuts have to do with the Chuck Jones Big Draw and you'd be right to do so.  I imagine that Chuck may have enjoyed a pink donut on occasion (no one's talking if he did or didn't), but still it seems a stretch, doesn't it?

Well, wonder no more!  "The Simpson's" storyboard artist and animator, Stephen Reis, will be one of our teaching artists at the upcomnig Chuck Jones Big Draw.  Not only will he be working with young and old alike at the animation station, but with his painting partner, Trevor Carlton, will be creating a painting to music in a performance you won't want to miss!  To read a great interview with Stephen, click on the pink donut.
