Big Draw in OC!


You can be a part of Guinness World Record history Sunday at 2 p.m. by helping create the largest art class held in a single venue! The Chuck Jones Big Draw will be going on from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m at SOCO in Costa Mesa. and the Chuck Jones Center will host a 45-minute drawing class on how to draw Bugs Bunny. It costs $25 to participate, or $40 for a family (or group) of four.  Tickets for the event are available through

There must be more than 817 people at the art class to break the recent record at an art class held in Copenhagen, Denmark in June. Craig Kausen, of the Chuck Jones Center in Orange and the grandson of Chuck Jones, spearheaded the idea, and thinks that his grandfather would have loved idea of this huge gathering of people all learning how to draw Bugs Bunny.

The Chuck Jones Big Draw is a fun-filled event for all ages and artistic levels designed to inspire creativity at school, business, sciences, sports and fine arts. Artists who will be on hand to offer their expertise during event include, Stephen Reis, storyboard artist for “The Simpsons”, California surf artist, Bob Elias and Christopher Scardino, the Center’s teaching artist.
