Creative Arts @WSYMCA

The Creative Arts Department at the West Suburban YMCA fosters joy and creativity through holistic artistic instruction within a brave space, where all levels and ages are welcome to explore without fear of making mistakes.

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!

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