About Chuck Jones Center for Creativity Chicagoland
The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, is a 501(c)3 public charity based in Orange County, CA. Chuck Jones was a creative genius who gave life to Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote and Bugs Bunny along with over 300 animated films. The Center, which Jones founded in 1999, is an organization that fosters and teaches creative thinking—the thinking behind problem solving.
It’s a fact that “creativity” is like a muscle in your brain that needs exercise in order to get and stay healthy. The stronger that muscle is, the better it works in engaging tasks and solving problems. The Center serves as a gymnasium for the creative brain.
The Center works with disadvantaged youth, school systems without arts programs, people on the autism spectrum, the elderly (many of whom suffer from early onset dementia), and other groups, including corporate clients, who see the value of pumping up creativity in their ranks. For more information on the workshops call 630-283-3621.
