Proceeds from our events increase access to the school for students with financial needs, support the school's efforts to provide arts education in under-resourced counties, and help bridge the gap between state funding and the unique needs of a premier public arts school.

This year Arts Escape will be a hands-on visual arts masterclass for the non-artist. Arts Escape will bring participants together either in person on the Governor's School campus or virtually with all of the art supplies they need to take home a beautiful piece of handcrafted art. Our teaching artist will be Elaine Quave, a visual arts faculty member at the school and alum from the first residential class.
