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+ Schools 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.
