Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania’s Arts program is designed to foster creativity in young people, and give youth in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas an opportunity for self-expression. From photography to hip-hop, our arts programs have something that will inspire all youth.
Youth develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge, appreciation and performance. Art used as a relaxing hobby can offer mental health benefits of stress relief, improved everyday mood, creative thinking, boosted self-esteem, a sense of accomplishment, and improved clarity throughout the school day. BGWPA’s affordable programming sets it apart from other arts offerings and gives a wider range of youth access to artistic opportunities like drawing and painting, performing arts, cooking and baking, and more.
The Arts program provides every Clubhouse member a variety of opportunities to showcase their talents as a core piece of our everyday rotations. BGCWPA also offers Specialty Art Programs at various Clubhouse locations throughout the year for those with a passion for a particular medium. Check out our current Art offerings below.
