Last week the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts made a special visit to Lycée Francais de la Nouvelle-Orléans to share the art of George Rodrigue with their Bonjour NOLA Summer Camp. As part of our presentation, we shared information about the history of the Acadian and Cajun people, as well as how their historic legacies impacted the life and artwork of Rodrigue.
Campers learned about the origin of the iconic Blue Dog, which began as Rodrigue’s interpretation of the Cajun loup-garou legend. They then used primary colors to sculpt their own version of the Blue Dog. We loved spending the afternoon with this creative and curious group of campers!
