Art exploration boasts big benefits for kids. In fact, according to PBS.org, kids who make art are developing their motor skills, language, decision-making, visual learning, inventiveness, cultural awareness and improving academic performance.

Exposure to different forms of artistic expression beyond the art education children get in class can open up a whole new world – and even spark their interest in performing on stage or creating their own masterpieces.

Whether it’s dance, pottery, theater, music or fiber arts, there are several different ways to explore the arts in Macomb County. Last year, Macomb County launched a map of public art. Searchable by type of art (sculpture, architecture and more), this is a fun way for a family to explore public art in their community.
