The Living Arts & Science Center



The Living Arts & Science Center is an award-winning, lively and growing non-profit organization that is currently celebrating our 50th anniversary.  A large expansion and renovation of our facility was completed two years ago and includes eight classrooms, a Digital Media Lab, a Clay Studio, a Teaching Kitchen, Lexington's only Planetarium, three art galleries, an interactive Discovery Gallery, outdoor educational gardens, a Children's Art Gallery, and more.  The Living Arts & Science Center is committed to ensuring opportunity and access to all and provides numerous arts and science programs in public schools and works with social service agencies and community centers to provide arts and science programs for at-risk, special needs and underserved children and adults.  A large scholarship program also provides free and reduced cost classes for hundreds of students with financial need.
