Big News! Tell Your Friends! Tell Your Enemies Too!

I mentioned previously that there was Big News on the horizon for us here at Rock U. Well, there is more to come, but here's the BIG NEWS flash for today.

Rock University will be offering ART INSTRUCTION in February!

We realize that this is a bit of a tangent from our initial mission, but we feel that the need exists in Neoga, especially since we have no Art courses in our school district. Additionally, we feel that many adults might be interested in furthering their skills as well.

Here's how it'll work. We have four instructors who have tentatively agreed to try this out, all of whom have previously worked in our schools, have lived in our town, or have taught some of our kids in their nearby studios. I'll withhold names for now, until plans are finalized.

I hope for each instructor to teach TWO small group classes per week, focusing on various types of art such as watercolors, pastels, acrylic and/or oil painting, sculpture, etc. Offerings will be finalized in January, and then we'll post the schedule and begin student sign up.

Classes will be located next door to Rock U, in the office formerly housing Krueger Insurance. Due to limited space in the back room, the classes will be limited to 4 or 5 students. Stay tuned for more details, and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.


Dawn James will be offering group piano/pre-percussion lessons in the front room of the Krueger building in February. Students of all ages (4 and up) are encouraged to sign up. Do you have a little one who shows musical interest or aptitude? Are you an adult who has been hesitant to try private lessons? These small group formats will be ideal for either situation! So, don't hesitate, contact us today!
