Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Orange County, California. Founded in 1999 by the four-time Academy Award recipient and legendary animation creator and director, Chuck Jones, the Center's vision is to inspire the innate creative genius within each person that leads to a more joyous, passionate, and harmonious life and world.
These are important goals, particularly in today's world, when arts education is practically non-existent; we are dedicated to re-invigorating the creative spirit and we are doing it through art classes, exhibitions, lectures, film festivals, and our online community, all of which spring from the material in the Chuck Jones archive. Jones was a determined saver and his writings, art, and other ephemera from a nine-decade life, along with his philosophy of guiding and nurturing instruction, form the basis of our programs.
Our growing creative community inspires joy and innovation in people of all ages, energizing them to transform their lives, their communities, and society as a whole.
