For the next three summers, West Virginia Wesleyan College will be the site for the Governor's School for the Arts. It's a three week intensive program that focuses on literature, performance art and visual art. Sophomores in high school that show promise in these areas are good candidates for the program.
Students in the program get to practice with professionals in their respective fields of writing, dance, music, acting, digital media, drawing and painting. Jessica Scott, instructor of interdisciplinary studies, will serve as Dean of the School. John Waltz, director of admission, will serve as Assistant Dean. "We are excited to be hosting the Governor's School for the Arts for the first time.
Hosting the Governor's School for the Arts allows us to participate in providing important learning experiences for some of the most creative young people in our state, and we welcome the opportunity to contribute to the development of one of West Virginia's most dynamic and valuable resources, our young people," said Dean Scott.
This year's session will be from July 6-26. The theme is "Connecting the Arts." For more information, please visit the Governor’s Schools website at www.govschools.wv.gov.
