First Federally Endorsed Arts Integration Program!
Cllck here to see great video from Good Morning America of Sarah Jessica Parker endorsing a new federal arts-integrated school program. We at the George Rodrigue Foundation are so happy to hear that arts-integration is getting some attention nationally!
Batiste Cultural Arts Academy in New Orleans was selected as one of eight schools nationwide to be a part of this 2-year initiative. This is the first federal initiative to examine the role of arts in school reform and will also generate new research looking at how a robust arts program affects students.

"The GRFA has immensely impacted my art along with my life. People seem to react and appreciate my submission for the foundation. I have offers of people wanting prints of my artwork and, not to sound cheesy and cliche, but opportunity just keeps on knocking. I'm really really appreciative that my art teacher introduced this contest to me and that I decided to be bold by creating something beautiful for this foundation, and to be honored for my creativity! I can't thank to GRFA office and George and Wendy Rodrigue enough for this amazing opportunity that I will always remember and carry proudly with me throughout my creative career."
