LAA+ Welcomes New Professional Development Coordinator

Professional Development Coordinator Joins LAA+ Team

George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts is pleased to announce that Rachel Lock is our new Professional Development Coordinator for Louisiana A+ Schools! In this role, she will ensure consistency of all professional development functions involving LAA+ teachers, administrators, Fellows, and teaching artists.

LAA+ Welcomes Rachel Lock

Lock has a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She began her teaching career in 2008, where she developed an interest in using visual arts as a teaching strategy in her classroom. From there, she continued to expand her knowledge of arts integration in 2009 through the ICI Initiative, a program dedicated to promoting and modeling arts-integrated teaching strategies and ideas.

She has served on multiple arts integration committees, as well as most recently maintaining the role of Arts Liaison at her school. After witnessing first hand how the arts impacted her classroom, she decided to become a Louisiana A+ Schools Fellow in 2013. Since then, she has led multiple teams of Fellows during LAA+ Summer Institutes.

Print Donation Program

Does your charity or non-profit need a unique fundraising tool? GRFA's Print Donation Program is a wonderful and cost effective way to raise funds for your organization!

For a $500 donation to GRFA, you can choose from seven vibrant Rodrigue Estate Stamped silkscreen prints to use in an auction or raffle. If the print purchased does not provide the organization funds exceeding the original investment, it can be returned and GRFA will refund the $500. Since 2009, the Print Donation Program has helped over 1,000 charities raise over $3 million at their fundraising events.

These prints are not for sale through the Rodrigue Studio and are only accessible to the general public through this exclusive opportunity for non-profit and charity organizations.
