Because schools have been closed multiple days over much of the state during January, we are extending--once more--the deadline for mailing Part II of the Governor's School for the Arts application. If your school is in session today, you have until Tuesday to mail it. If it is not, you have until Wednesday, February 2. The portfolios/videos are still due by February 4.
The GSA mission is to enable students to explore multiple art forms, learn from one another, and experience first-hand the power of the arts. "
An emphasis will be placed on collaborating and sharing our work within our GSA community. The inclusion of regional guest artists and interactions with works beyond our Appalachian area will provide unique opportunities to grow as artists. Our goals are to develop stronger artists, empower students with collaborative skills, and introduce students to strategies that employ the arts to positively influence communities.
Read through the information in all the GSA links on the footer on this page and then zero in on the sections about applying and auditioning. It's like the lottery. You can't win if you don't play.
