Professional Development

The Living Arts and Science Center, of Lexington, is pleased to present professional development programs to elementary and middle school teachers in Kentucky. We promote academic achievement and scientific understanding by empowering teachers to engage students in creative and hands-on learning experiences that reflect the many ways that science and art are practiced, applied, and interrelated. LASC workshops are dynamic, relevant, and always based on Kentucky core concepts. All workshop participants will receive a unit of study complete with lesson plans and a hands-on classroom activity kit. Call The Living Arts & Science Center for more information or to register for these free professional development opportunities! Katherine Bullock, Educational Outreach Coordinator @ 859-252-5222 or

Please join us for a hands-on professional development workshop to learn more about Monarch butterflies and the rich cultural traditions associated with their migration – including the upcoming Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  We’ll engage with a presentation about Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), view a traditional altar but that’s not all!  We’ll start a fun Monarch art project that you can take to your school and use as a springboard for students to explore core content in Science, Social Studies, Writing, and the Arts!  We will also present information about this year’s Community Schools Art Project for our Festival Del Dia De Los Muertos (LASC’s Day of the Dead Festival: Sunday, November 1st, 5-9PM) and how to get involved.  For more information about the LASC’s Community Schools Art Project and how to integrate it into your curriculum please contact us 859-252-5222.
