CHUCK JONES CENTER FOR CREATIVITY

Our vision is a world where creativity is known and experienced in every discipline including science, technology, math, engineering and the arts. Our mission is to inspire creativity via the unique philosophies and creative genius of legendary animator and founder, Chuck Jones. The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is a “gymnasium for the brain” that fosters creative thinking, the thinking behind problem solving, through creativity exercises. Creativity is like a muscle in your brain that needs exercise. The stronger it is, the better it works. But creativity is waning … the brain is not being sufficiently exercised. Creative activities at the Center address this gap. Creativity means a brighter future for youth. Creativity helps people find jobs – businesses of all sizes are seeking employees with the ability to think creatively. Unfortunately, California schools continue to eliminate funding for arts education. Children don’t have the chance to develop creative abilities, impacting their ability to reach their full potential after graduation. The arts promote healthy aging. Evidence demonstrates that creative exercises improve the brain health of older people; reducing the advancement of dementia and helping seniors live independently. Creative activities benefit children on the autism spectrum. Our programs facilitate connections with others, use visual art as a form of non-verbal communication and increase tolerance to stimuli.
