Rising Artist Program
Initiated by GSA in 2015, the Rising Artist Program (RAP) is currently being piloted in Lee and Owsley counties. In partnership with Morehead State University (MSU), GSA and MSU faculty and arts education students provide onsite arts immersion experiences supported throughout the year by virtual, yearlong instruction. In addition, students participate in immersion site visits on the MSU campus studying side by side with college students and faculty.
“GSA has helped to bring attention and focus on things that were once almost lost. I strongly believe that because of [the Rising Artist Program] my students have a different/better attitude and outlook.”— Michelle Estes, Teacher at Lee County High School
