On Thursday, January 14th, the 3rd grade students at Homer A. Plessy Community School had quite a treat. Jewelry designer Kendra Scott, who recently opened a retail location on Magazine Street, stopped by to share the art of jewelry making with students at this New Orleans Louisiana A+ School.

After developing their individual designs, students worked with the Kendra Scott team to build their unique pieces. Artist Mallory Page, whose artwork inspired Kendra Scott's Spring 2016 Collection, was there to share the design experience with the students. Page is the daughter-in-law of George Rodrigue and works to continue his legacy of arts education as a board member for GRFA.

In addition to this special visit, Kendra Scott and Mallory Page hosted a fundraising event that evening at her New Orleans jewelry store. Kendra generously donated a portion of proceeds from jewelry sales to GRFA's arts-in-education programs.
