You need to draw into an icon, and then animate the icon you draw into.
animate is a method of the ICON class that all icons inherit from. ICON
itself inherits from MovieClip.
So, add an empty graphic to a page, give it an ID, say myIcon.
In script under the graphic, use the ID to draw into the icon:
then you can animate it:

	Is there a way to animate an object created with the drawRect()
method? If I draw a box with: 

	rb2.createEmptyMovieClip("red_box", 0); 
	rb2.red_box.lineStyle(2, 0xFF0000, 80); 
	rb2.red_box.drawRect(190, 42, 170, 19, 0); 

	... I would expect that rb2.red_box.animate(190, 62, 10,
'linearTween'); would work, but it doesn't. The box is created, but
doesn't animate. animate() works fine moving the contents of a text icon

	Not a big deal, just wondering if there is a way ...
