NAASA Adventures

On November 11,  Members of LPA joined in on the opening reception of the State Arts Agencies’ Arts Education 2014 Professional Development Institute. The reception was held at the George Rodrigue Studio on Royal Street in New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. A good time was had by all as they enjoyed this impressive Art & Jazz Social, and here are the pictures to prove it!
