All of our toddler and preschool Arts & Humanities classes focus on youth development with projects that enhance the young artists’ fine motor skills. Projects designed to increase their understanding of shapes and colors help develop language and literacy skills. Our youth classes educate our school age and teen children in disciplines such as environmental responsibility, world cultures, and life social skills. Our adult classes provide an opportunity for adults and seniors to socialize with each other, learn something new, and keep their creativity flowing.
Through the Arts and Humanities Department, the Y collaborates with other community groups by hosting Miller-Keystone blood drives, participates in Quakertown’s community based events such as Arts Alive and Autumn Alive, organizes volunteers who contribute to a cleaner environment through the PA Department of Transportation Adopt-A-Highway program, and gives 750 coats away to needy families through the annual “Drive Away the Cold” coat giveaway in cooperation with the Auto Dealers of the Delaware Valley.
