May 25L A Night at the Museum

April 19th, 2017
Events, Northampton

This year the Forks YMCA Education Center’s art show theme is “A Night at the Museum.” The event will be held May 25 at 7:00 pm.

The children will be displaying the works they created based on this theme in the gymnasium at the Family YMCA of Easton located at 1225 West Lafayette Street.

The pieces that the young artists created will be on display and auctioned off to raise money for scholarships. The Y promise is that no child is turned away due to an inability to pay. Charitable support helps the Y keep this promise. When a child makes, looks at, and talks about art and the artwork of others they gain valuable skills. The art show was created to infuse the arts more fully into the early childhood education curriculum.

Light refreshments will be served.
