In many ways, Lancaster County is an arts community. Several artists live here, work here, and display their art here. Lancaster initiated the Arts in Education program, a statewide program first piloted here to bring hands-on art instruction from artists-in-residence to students from elementary to high schools. Theatre productions, classical and folk music concerts, and chamber choir performances are scheduled throughout the year. Something is always going on in the arts in Lancaster—from art, pottery, and drama workshops to gallery crawls.
