Why the Arts?

The arts provide a level of personal enrichment not found in other media or forms of self-expression. Our art programs help foster creativity and innovation, and in a time when even early learning curricula is shifting focus more heavily toward math, science, and engineering, the Haselwood YMCA is pleased to offer engaging art programs. 


Studies show a causal link between music and spatial intelligence, which is just one of the many benefits to a enjoyable early-aged music program.
