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
"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."
