SkylArc Studio is a day services program that provides opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities to express themselves through art.

Located on Main Street in Penn Yan, SkylArc Studio provides a safe and comfortable environment that encourages creativity and self-expression for individuals.

While exploring artistic abilities, individuals not only learn about art, they learn about themselves. Staff work with individuals to foster their artistic capabilities while assisting them in developing skills in communication, socialization, and money management. By participating in the SkylArc program, individuals achieve a higher level of independence, a stronger awareness of responsibility, and a sense of productivity in the community.

Artists specialize in glass mosaics, but also work in the mediums of acrylics, paper mache, photography, glass fusing, pottery and printmaking.  Much of the work is commissioned by individuals and businesses and non-profit organizations in the community. The studio participates annually in art shows in the area. Members of the studio are always pleased to welcome visitors and are proud to showcase their artistry at the gallery.

If you would like to learn more about SkylArc Studio or are interested in purchasing art, please contact us at (315) 536-4912 or

Annual Donor Reception

The highlight of the reception was the Greenspace project that is currently underway. The reception was held behind The Center for Life Long Learning, overlooking the new space and allowing attendees to walk the beginning of the trails if they wished.

The two acre parcel, purchased after the flood in 2014 to complete flood mitigation, is being cleared to create a wheelchair accessible cinder trail.  Additional plans include construction of a bridge, additional trails and natural enhancements.  The woodlands are located in the middle of the village and will be usable for the community at large.
