Eau Claire YMCA, 700 Graham Avenue, Eau Claire, WI
Y Arts Week is being celebrated nationwide from October 7th-13th in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month. This is an initiative of the Y that promotes the power of art to educate, inspire, and connect the entire community. This will be the first year that the Eau Claire YMCA is participating in the Y Arts Week movement, and we are looking forward to inviting children, teens, and their families to attend this free weeklong community event that will showcase various forms of artful expression.
In addition to standing for Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility, we at the Y recognize that the arts offer an incredible opportunity to create and develop a deeper sense of community amongst our members and neighbors, regardless of age. We are excited to offer this program because the arts and humanities are an essential creative and expressive outlet that are key to a child’s development.
Each day of Y Arts Week, we will be showcasing and celebrating a different form of art.
