About our Art From Home Initiative

Rau for Art is creating art kits for high school students in New Orleans and surrounding areas. In lieu of our annual Teacher Assistance Fund, which supplies classrooms with needed art materials, this year, in response to the pandemic, RFA is providing students with supplies directly. We will rely on art teachers to apply for these (free) kits for their students and to help us distribute them.

We hope these supplies will enable students to continue their creative journey, whether for art assignments or personal projects. We hope the kits will enable students to create an artwork for our Art Scholarship Competition — to have the opportunity to win college scholarship money and exhibit your work at our world-class gallery in the French Quarter.
