Beginning in 2015, the Allegany Arts Council contracted with the Evergreen Heritage Center Foundation to run the Arts in the Schools program in collaboration with local artists in Allegany County.

Arts in the Schools programs for third and fifth grades are sponsored by the Maryland State Arts Council, the Allegany Arts Council, and the Nora Roberts Foundation. The programs take an interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the environment, and feature art creation from recycled products, painting, dancing, poetry, and music. These half-day in-school programs run from November to March.
