Blue Dog

Third graders learned about the American artist George Rodrigue.  Rodrigue is from Louisiana. Rodrigue shot to fame for painting “BLUE DOG”. Blue Dog was inspired from a childhood tale of a werewolf dog Rordrigue heard as a child and from his family dog, Tiffany. Blue Dog has popped up in all sorts of modern pop culture. Where have you seen Blue Dog?

( I have a lot of Hispanic students at my school and I love how they always sneak the love of their culture into art projects. The Mexican flag always seems to find its way into art projects. And I love the Blue Dog painted all orange from eating Takis. If you've eaten Takis, (a Mexican type of chip like Cheetohs), they make a huge orange mess. I love how that students covered his Blue Dog in orange paint)
