This summer, The Kentucky Center hosted more than 250 eager young artists from every region of the Commonwealth, as The Kentucky Center Governorís School for the Arts (GSA) took place at Danvilleís Centre College from June 19 to July 9, 2016.

Completing the program from Adair County:
- Serena Corbin, of Adair County High School, Visual Art
During their three-week stay, 256 student artists from 53 counties were immersed in a rigorous schedule of daily seminars, master-classes, lectures, hands-on workshops and field trips to regional arts attractions. Since 1987, more than 5,500 talented high school sophomores and juniors have attended the GSA summer program.

Instruction was offered in nine disciplines: Architecture and Design, Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Instrumental Music, Musical Theatre, New Media, Visual Art and Vocal Music.

The program culminated on July 9 with an all-day festival that celebrated the achievements of Kentuckyís young artists. Additionally, 27 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.

Today, the vital funding required to make GSA a reality is provided by the state through the leadership of the Governorís Office and the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, as well as The Kentucky Center Endowment Fund, Toyota Motor Manufacturing and more than 300 corporations, parents, educators, alumni and friends of GSA.
