WDET STAR: Children's Fly Art Center

by: Travis Wright

WDET’s Star Initiative tells the stories of arts and culture non-profits that do pivotal work on humble budgets, like the Fly Children's Art Center.

After cuts to arts programs in public schools left a void, The Fly Children’s Art Center in Ypsilanti was created to provide opportunities for kids to express themselves in particularly creative environments.

Fly Arts board members Kris Bruxvoort and Kristin Schrader spoke with WDET’s Travis Wright. Bruxvoort says Fly was founded by an art educator named Ruth Marks.
