|On Saturday, March 12, 2016, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council will present Young at Art, an expo of arts camps and schools, to assist parents with selecting the appropriate summer class for their child. This inaugural event will be held at Penn State Lehigh Valley, from 9:00am to 2:30pm, and feature thirty exhibitors who offer lessons in the performing, literary, media and visual arts. Free admission to the expo is provided to the public.
Families with children (ages four to eighteen years old) will enjoy meeting the various exhibitors and learning about the artistic opportunities for their aspiring creatives. The day’s festivities will showcase an arts demonstration, performance or activity every 25-minutes so children will have a chance “to try on what kind of artist” they want to be this summer.
“The idea for a children’s arts expo came from a parent of two small children who was having difficulty identifying a summer program for both her kids,” says Executive Director Randall Forte. “Bringing people together to engage with the arts is what the Arts Council does.”
A limited number of spaces are available for arts and cultural organizations to exhibit and promote their programs, and registration will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. There will also be opportunities for exhibitors to select a 25-minute time slot to showcase a demonstration or activity. For more details on registration, organizations may visit http://www.LVArtsCouncil.org/Young-At-Art.
The fee for exhibiting is $250 for members and $350 for nonmembers. Arts Council members can also take advantage of a $50 discount for early registration by December 15, 2015. The final date for registration will be January 20, 2016. Any questions may be directed to the Lehigh Valley Arts Council at 610-437-5259.

York City has been named one of the “most livable” cities in the country, one of 12 cities out of 200 applicants to win the honor.
The award recognizes mayoral leadership in developing and implementing programs that improve the quality of life in America’s cities, focusing on the leadership, creativity and innovation demonstrated by the mayors.
The city received the award because of the “Teen’s Fourth Friday” program York City Mayor Kim Bracey began in September 2013.
Creative Yorkers will soon have access to some big tools that could bring their big ideas to life.
The owners of Rudy Art Glass, in collaboration with Salvaging Creativity, are planning to open a “makerspace” inside the company’s 15 E. Philadelphia St. studio.
Rudy Art Glass, which dates to 1892, makes decorative glass and sells it all over the world, mostly for use in commercial properties, co-owner Erin Casey said.
Despite its prominent downtown York location, the company does little business locally, she said.
