The YMCA of Rock River Valley is one of the Rockford, Illinois region’s oldest and largest charitable nonprofit organizations, and serves over 40,000 individuals each year through a wide variety of programs and services. The YMCA of Rock River Valley’s mission statement is to put Christian principles into practice through programs, services and relationships that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. This is achieved by developing and delivering programs in three key focus areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

The YMCA of Rock River Valley will offer workshops in canvas painting, storytelling and stained glass painting. The goal is to ensure that all participants gain an artistic skill that they can use for whatever ends that they feel is best, while also having an overall enriching experience during the weekly classroom sessions.
