Getting Creative With 2 Louisiana A+ Schools

GRFA Visits Louisiana A+ Schools in  New Orleans and Baton  Rouge

The George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts and Executive Director Jacques Rodrigue visited two Louisiana A + Schools this week to read George Rodrigue's beloved children's books to students and share an ornament-making project inspired by the many colors of Rodrigue's Blue Dog series. Thank you to the students and teachers of Homer A. Plessy Community School in New Orleans and The Durfrocq School in Baton Rouge for welcoming us into your classrooms!
