Every summer for over three decades, GSA and their faculty of professional artist/educators have guided over two hundred of Kentucky’s finest young artists through three weeks of incredibly intense (and incredibly fun) arts instruction. GSA auditions promising high school sophomores and juniors in nine different arts disciplines: Architecture and Design, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media: Still Photography and Film, Visual Art and Vocal Music.
For three solid weeks residing on a college campus, the students discover the power of their art and their place as an artist. This year the program will be held at the University of Kentucky.
