Girls working on art projectThe Y-Arts mission is to provide high quality arts education and resources for people of all ages and abilities in the community, to uplift and enhance lives through art education, to encourage excellence at every skill level, and to promote community awareness and appreciation of the arts. The highly qualified staff at Y-Arts encourage personal excellence at every skill level.

Engaged with the local art community, Y-Arts students enjoy guest artists-in-residence as well as the multi-dimensional talents of the Y-Arts teachers.

The many choices in the class schedule make Y-Arts a natural choice for art education at all ages. Read more about the impact of art in education on our blog.

Y-Arts classes are designed to develop and nurture the artistic ability in everyone so they may have a lifetime of pleasure in the arts.
