Who is Creative York?
Creative York (formerly YorkArts) is a 501c3 non-profit arts center located in downtown York, Pennsylvania, featuring 3 art galleries, art classes for all ages, and several community outreach programs. Our educational outreach programs and first-class facilities in historic downtown York draw their success from the arts’ unique ability to stimulate, challenge, illuminate, and inspire. Creative York is also proud to provide a focused effort to reach at-risk children in the City of York. Our Art in the Parks summer program features art-making activities that teach social skills, respect for others, group decision-making, teamwork, and positive self-expression to more than 600 children yearly. We also serve a broader audience through free art exhibits and many other mission-related activities.
Our Mission: Creative York nurtures imagination, creativity, and innovation in our community.
