Calling all Vermont young artists for their best summer ever!
Any enthusiastic Vermont 9th-11th grader is invited to join the Governor’s Institutes of Vermont for the summer of a lifetime! Our summer Institutes give talented students the chance to immerse themselves in a topic they love, make new friends from all over the state, and experience life on a college campus. Plus, it’s tons of fun!
If you love the arts–visual, performing, or otherwise!–then one of our limited remaining spots in our Arts Institute could be for you. At the Arts Institute, you will sing, dance, sculpt, draw, write, act, compose, and more. Whatever your art form, you’ll grow as an artist through immersion in creativity, collaboration with professional artists, and looking at the world in new and inspiring ways. Join us at GIV and become part of a passionate learning community of people just like you!
GIV is dedicated to being accessible for every Vermonter, so our sliding scale tuition will make it affordable for you and your family.
Ready to apply? Head over to http://www.giv.org/applylate to get started! Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so don’t delay. We’ll see you this summer!
