The Prototype Program provides Art students with unique privileges and opportunities. To begin, students admitted to the program will have access to personal studio space in Knight Hall, adjacent to the Wilson Art Building. They will be able to engage with visiting artists exhibiting work in The Galleries at Georgetown College. Participants will have the opportunity to assist faculty on special projects and exhibitions. And perhaps most importantly, they will be involved in and contribute to a vibrant arts community, including the Prototype Open House and special group exhibitions. The Prototype Program is available to both incoming and current students.

“Having my own studio space means having a place that I can be surrounded by inspiration. Its a place where my focus can be on creating and where that creativity is not held back”
