New Teen Night Program

Express yourself!

Discover the creative genius in you. Through this taster of the arts you will experiment with different mediums and techniques found throughout the visual and performing arts.

Each class will begin with a theme based on current artists, films and pop culture. Once inspired we will learn the techniques necessary to  express the theme through performance, individual or collaborative pieces of art.

As we build confidence and discover individual strengths, we will discuss how to apply our skills in the future and throughout all aspects of life. Come on down on Fridays to the Eau Claire YMCA from 5:00 – 6:00pm and enjoy this drop in class along with full facility access for $4 for youth 12 – 18.
