Student at the LASCThe Living Arts and Science Center (LASC) inspires participation in art and science by engaging the community through education, discovery, exploration and creativity.
This is accomplished through classes, workshops, hands-on programs, participatory exhibits, opportunities to learn science and art directly from performing or exhibiting artists and scientists, collaborative experiences for the community, and educational programs in schools, community centers, and other venues to reach special needs, at risk and underserved children and adults. The LASC offers free programming for all members of the Central Kentucky community. The staff and board of directorsforward this mission through maintaining ethical standards and ongoing oversight of the programming offered at LASC.
