  • Wednesday, June 19, 2013


Students from across the state will attend the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities (SCGSAH) Summer Programs. Students attend programs based on their age and art discipline.†
Summer students, selected from an application and audition process, experience the challenges and rewards of intensive arts training. The summer faculty is made up of practicing artists who are dedicated to nurturing creative potential.
†Summer students have the opportunity to showcase their work in end-of-session recitals, readings and presentations. While learning discipline and craft from instructors who are practicing artists, they also form bonds with emerging artists from all the art areas in a supportive and engaging environment.
