Arts Events at The Governor's Academy

about govs arts

Students in "The Art of Persuasion," a year-long senior English elective taught by media industry marketing veteran David Brooks P’23, spent the fall semester at The Governor's Academy learning hands-on, real-world marketing skills. They developed a strategic marketing campaign to showcase Govs Arts and the extensive lineup of winter and spring events. They began executing their marketing plans earlier this month. Please enjoy this promotional trailer produced by the class.
