The Arts can be very therapeutic. Engaging in the arts has been shown to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and improve our overall health and well-being.
The Keene Family YMCA offers a selection of arts and movement classes that will help you tap into your creativity and explore new methods of expression. Each class is age-appropriate and designed to offer a fun introduction to the arts for both children and adults.

Program Procedures and Refund policies
The Keene Family YMCA remains proactive in our efforts to ensure the health and well-being of our members, staff, volunteers and community. We continue to monitor transmission rates and will make adjustments to our protocols as needed based upon the recommendations of the CDC.
Masks are optional within our facility.
As a reminder, if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the Y. Additionally, we do strongly recommend regular handwashing, and social distancing whenever possible.
These guidelines are subject to change based on current guidance from the CDC.
Those wishing to switch classes/programs prior to the registration closure date may do so at the Y Welcome Center. After a session has begun only program directors are able to process registration changes. If, for any reason a program is not suitable please see your instructor or program director. The participant is responsible for any fee difference between programs and this must be paid at the time of the class switch.
If after paying for a program you decide to withdraw your enrollment before the start of the second week of the program you will be issued a system credit to only be used towards another program at the Y. If you have attended the first class your credit will be prorated accordingly. The exceptions to this policy would be injury, illness or COVID isolation that kept you from participating, and those individuals should consult the program Director and may be eligible for a refund. A doctor’s note will be required.
If the Y cancels a program after you register you are entitled to the choice of a system credit or refund.
If the Y cancels an individual class, no refunds or credits will be issued for that class. Every effort will be made by the program director to schedule a makeup class. Please be aware that make up classes may not be scheduled on the same day or time as your original class.
Children under 11 must be dropped off and picked up by an adult from class at the designated beginning and end time. We value this time to communicate with our Y families and continuous supervision provides the safest possible environment for your child. Please be on time for programs to ensure your child has the proper warm-up to prevent injury and/or instructions to complete the day’s objectives.
Parents are always welcome to observe their children in programs and encouraged to communicate with Y staff at the beginning and end of classes. We discourage “coaching” from the sidelines, as such behavior can be distracting to both your child’s and other participants’ learning. If you have concerns or comments that warrant additional time, please make an appointment to speak with the program director.
