The West Virginia Governor's School for the Arts is a program for high school students involved with the arts. Those students in the program filled West Virginia Wesleyan’s campus Sunday, and will be spending three weeks working in the arts.
During the students three week stay at Wesleyan, they will get to take courses in the arts and get a college campus experience.
“I am so excited for it. Once I auditioned I knew this was the place for me. It just seems like so much fun and a great learning experience,” said Savannah Bailey, of Oak Glen High School in Hancock County.
“It’s really exciting to get to know other musicians, and to be able to talk and people understand what your saying when your enthusiastic about something like that,” said Abigail Williams, of University High School in Monongalia County.
Those high school students will be exposed to professionals who have a background in the arts in the field of writing, dance, music, acting, digital media, drawing and painting.
