This summer, The Kentucky Center will host more than 200 eager young artists from every region of the commonwealth, as The Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) takes place at Danville’s Centre College through July 12.

During their three-week stay, 223 student artists from 42 counties will be immersed in a rigorous schedule of daily seminars, master-classes, lectures, hands-on workshops and field trips to regional arts attractions. Instruction will be offered in nine disciplines: Architecture, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media, Visual Art and Vocal Music.

Participating from Shelby County is Amy Dotson of Eminence High School, creative writing; Virginia Rhodes of home school, visual art; and Ruth Sangster of Collins High School, vocal music.

Since 1987, more than 4,900 talented high school rising juniors and seniors have attended the GSA summer program. Twenty-five colleges and universities currently offer scholarships to alumni of GSA.

GSA is a public/private partnership inaugurated in 1987 by The Kentucky Center, the Commonwealth of Kentucky and numerous private supporters.
