WHAT WE DO

We focus on creating a nurturing environment to feed the artist in all of us. Especially in the realm of children, we are focused on a positive educational process that can help them become better readers, learners and contributors to society. Rise Up Arts brings together the arts community in Fairfield County and beyond.

We began with the Writers Circle and Snapshots Photography Club meeting at the local library. As time went on, we branched out to include Rise Up Youth Theatre to provide an artisitc outlet for students. Then we found the need for a knowledgeable costuming and fashion design to help our theatre goals, becoming the Central Ohio Costumers Guild. Then we started mixed cast productions with the community theatre. 

We then welcomed Lancaster Arts and Civics CLub to our organization and rebranded as Glass City Community Theatre.
