YorkArts is located in the heart of historic downtown York near Central Market. We exist to support the arts and to increase the awareness of the arts as an important core element of the community. YorkArts operates a beautiful gallery, artist and pottery studios, and administrative offices.

Besides the variety of educational classes held at our facility, YorkArts provides numerous opportunities for children to participate in the art-making process. Some of our projects include mosaic murals, Art in the Park, and sidewalk chalk art.
