Madison Youth Choir practicing at MYArts center

MYArts is much more than a building. It’s the best place for youth arts in Madison. It’s a wide open and welcoming community where you can discover yourself, your talents, and your friends through the arts.

  • MYArts was built for kids and youth and teens and tweens and everyone else in between!

  • Are you an explorer? A creator? A fearless voice? An artist seeking your community?

  • MYArts is a place where you–your art, your ideas, and your identity–matter.

MYArts is yours.
