The Art Rod Festival was a sucess! The day was full of fun activities and fantastic music, great food and some of the best people a person could ever meet. Dana Bowman spoke at several area Schools where he talked about the "Abilities" we all have inside. Dana made a dramatic skydiving entrance into Grandview Orchard as he later stated to the crowd "That was definately a three point landing". More later as I get use to this "Blog". Be Well, Greg DePauw

A NEWSLETTER has been created for the Art Rod Foundation! This will help people get a better understanding how the Art Rod Foundation is working within the Central IL. Community. We plan on having four Newsletters a year, (maybe more). This will happen with the help from Elizabeth Breithbarth.We will include pitures of students working with artist / teacher Greg DePauw as he travels to nearby Schools. Drop back in frequently to see the "New" Newsletters.
See You Soon, Greg

The photographs taken by Rob Rush were added to the web site a few days ago. Rob spent the whole day shooting images at the Art Rod Festival. I looked at about 300 images and chose 50+ to be added to the site. It is a great overview of the activities that took place at Grandview Orchard. Please take a few minutes to look over these photos.
More later, Greg

Curently working with Jr. high Art students at Riverview Grade School on a Art project called, "Knowledge Noggins".
I can see that the students are excited about creating Noggins or heads out of clay.
The "Knowledge Noggin" theme is to represent a persons who has had a positive impact on society. The students must research the person they choose and develope a short biography which defines that persons place in history. Then the clay heads are placed in a small 5" x 5" open wooden box with the head clearly visable. The students have decorated the box to reflect the person inside. Their stories are placed on the back. I see it as a great way to unite Art along with research and writing skills. These "Knowledge Noggins" will be on display in Metamora on December 3rd from 1-4 at the Village Hall.
See You There. Greg DePauw

WELL, WELL. The 9th annual ART ROD FESTIVAL was a great success. Each year we see more people, more activities, and more great people helping make this event one to remember. This year the PINSTRIPERS were a new addition "WOW, WOW what a cool thing" could be heard after viewing the artists pinstriping away on a panel. We plan on having an even larger PINSTRIPING area for 2007. All pinstripers are welcome. Read the thank you message and lok at the 2006 FESTIVAL.
