Arts

YMCA Creative Arts programs are excellent opportunities for youth, teens, adults and families to gain exposure to a significant aspect of our culture. Through the arts, participants experience activities that foster self-expression and build self-esteem, develop imagination, critical thinking and valuable social skills. Arts programs create a better understanding of the various cultures and backgrounds that make up our community and help foster uplifting relationships. The arts are ideal for celebrating families, friends and communities.

Creative Arts programs at the YMCA offer a non-competitive environment for children and adults to study and experience the arts. The arts are a fantastic way to enhance and practice the best and strongest values and parts of ourselves. Exposures to the arts develop progressive skills that help us connect and understand other people, and express our ideas while providing a unique entertainment experience.

A variety of art classes including painting drawing jewelry making paper crafts and other mediums are offered throughout the year.
