School Presentation

      Jodie & Grant were invited to the Immaculate Conception Elementary School in Port Clinton, OH., to present a program to 80 Pre-K through 5th graders, on December the 14th.

      The children learned through a Power Point presentation how a 3/D Nativity set was produced by Jodie. First the rough pencil were shown, then the front and side view of each little character, then the color was applied and e-mailed overseas for the mold makers to generate the figures, the prototypes were then forwarded to Jodie & Grant for their approval before going into production.
      Each child (and Teacher) received one of Jodie's 48 page coloring books based on this "Destination Location."
