BATON ROUGE - Students at Dufrocq Elementary got a special treat Thursday morning as George Rodrigue donated a year's worth of art supplies to the school.
Rodrigue also gave a demonstration of how to paint a blue dog. Students then went to the canvas to paint their own.
Mayor Kip Holden also painted one.
"You're capturing young people at an age that makes a difference instead of them being influenced by somebody that may send them in the wrong direction," Holden said.
Watch the video above to see how the mayor's blue dog turned out.
