GRFA is pleased to celebrate a year of successful arts in education programs that have impacted thousands of students across Louisiana. In 2016, we continued the legacy of artist George Rodrigue as we:

  • Welcomed 2 new schools to our Louisiana A+ School s program, an arts-integrated teacher training network.  LAA+ now impacts 10,000 students and 700 teachers each day.
  • Awarded $45,250 in scholarships to 16 Louisiana high school students through the GRFA Annual Scholarship Art Contest .
  • Donated $25,000 in art supply kits to Louisiana classrooms through the George's Art Closet program.
  • Helped 206 other non-profit organizations raise funds for their missions through GRFA's Print Donation Program .     

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we look forward to 2017 and the expansion of our statewide programs, we need your support more than ever.


Help us continue the mission of youth development through the arts in education by donating to the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts.

Thank you for your support!

 

 



Student Success
"GRFA has both given me a way to make my current dreams come true by helping me pay for college, but it has also showed me that beauty and pride in your state can come from so many different things, and perspectives people have are so widely varied. Even though everyone sees Louisiana in a different light, we also get to see that there's a fundamental love that people of this land share through art they create to express their thoughts." - Alexandra Olivier
