My introduction to The Living Arts & Science Center was last month, with the premier of the Habitat Earth planetarium show. My children enjoyed the show, as well as the recycled-material jewelry they made afterward. I signed up two of my children (my 4 year old and 9 year old) for summer camp classes. There are a variety of classes to choose from each week, such as learning to code with Scratch, or the Pattern Planet class for preschoolers. The kids are having a blast! The teachers and helpers are amazing, the kids are making friends, and they are having so much fun they have begged me to sign them up for more classes. I could not be more impressed with what The Living Arts & Science Center is doing for the community.

Bringing the arts right into the neighborhood! Great opportunities for artists and young people to collaborate and learn and showcase their work. Classes offered year-long at reasonable prices. An asset to the community!
