The Living Arts & Science Center inspires participation in art and science by engaging the community through education, discovery, exploration and creativity.
Our mission is accomplished through hands-on and interactive instruction in arts and science directly from professional educators and active artists and scientists. Activities include collaborative experiences for the community, educational programs in schools, community centers, and other venues as well as free programming for all members of the Central Kentucky community. The LASC also offers education tailored to special needs, at risk and underserved children and adults. The staff and board of directors support this mission through maintaining high ethical standards and efficient oversight of the LASC.
