Governor's School for the Arts Cuts New Media Program
To help close a $50,000 budget gap created by state spending cuts, the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts is suspending its new media discipline. That area is comprised of film production, still photography, Claymation, and other digital arts.
GSA executive director Carrie Nash says absorbing the cuts by eliminating one area of study helped maintain the health of the overall program. This summer the Lexington-based program accepted 225 high school students from all over Kentucky. Nash says the school selected 26 of those students from western Kentucky counties.
