The Prototype Program for the arts allows students at Georgetown College to have access to the resources they need to become practicing artists, from personal studio space to working with artists in the Visiting Artist and Emerging Artist in Residence Program. Program members will also have the opportunity to assist select faculty on special projects and exhibitions. This program is an opportunity for incoming students as well as current students.  For more on our three permanent art galleries, click here.
