Just like the DataseamGrid powers important research with trillions of calculations each second, the Kentucky Center Governor’s School for the Arts (GSA) is a grid empowering a network of proud Kentuckians, artists, creatives, and innovators. Now, with nearly 6,000 alumni, the resources and training that GSA provides students is evident in every region of Kentucky, the country, and the world.

While our alumni have a long list of distinguished artistic achievements (among them: performing at the Metropolitan Opera, illustrating for The New York Times, and publishing award-winning novels), GSA emphasizes that our students can leverage their creativity to achieve great accomplishments in a variety of fields. Nearly 40% of program alumni study a non-arts related field in college, and GSA alumni are leaders in business, education, medicine, government, and many other areas beyond the creative industry.

GSA also creates a life-long connection to Kentucky. 59% of students attend an in-state school; countless alumni have returned to Kentucky to start businesses in their home towns; and alumni outside of the state return as visiting artists and remain advocates for the region.

Your students can join this grid and be a part of the legacy of Kentucky artists! Please encourage your students to apply to the 2018 Summer Program. See below for more details.

More about the GSA Summer Program
Every summer for the last 30 years, GSA has guided over two hundred of Kentucky’s finest young artists through three weeks of incredibly intense (and incredibly fun) arts instruction. Residing on a college campus, the students discover the power of their art and their opportunity as an artist to make a lasting impact on their community and their world. It’s a thrilling, often life-changing experience, as they meet new friends, explore their craft, and learn to empower themselves as creative citizens.
Who Should Apply
High school sophomores and juniors with a passion for art should apply. Students may apply in up to two of GSA’s nine art forms (Architecture + Design, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Film + Photography, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, Visual Art, and Vocal Music.)
