Creative Arts

Did you know that when a group of people sing together, their hearts beat in unison? Creative Arts programs provide unique opportunities for self-expression and community connections.

So ... pick up a paint brush, an instrument, a microphone, or a pen and allow yourself to explore at the YMCA!

Learning a new instrument can improve your memory, raise your grades, and help to reduce stress! Whether you are a 3rd grader learning an instrument for the first time or a parent picking up their clarinet after 10+ years, our private lessons are the best way to make music a regular part of your day. Check out our Music Studio for more information on private lessons!

Want to reserve our studio to do your own projects? Send us a request.
