Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania’s Arts
program is designed to foster creativity in young
people, and give the youth of Pittsburgh and its
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.
