Art Programs

YMCA art programs are excellent opportunities for youth to gain exposure to a significant aspect of our culture. Through the arts, participants experience activities that foster self-expression and build self-esteem, while developing imagination, critical thinking, and valuable social skills. The arts are ideal in celebrating families, friends, and communities.
