About Us

FLY is a mobile nonprofit art center that brings meaningful art making experiences to children in Southeastern Michigan. We convert public schools, libraries, and community centers into temporary art studios by bringing in supplies and studio staff. Our classes are free to the children who attend them because we believe all children are makers who deserve the chance to actively experiment, fail, innovate and succeed.

FLY Children's Art Center is a non-profit mobile open studio for kids. Our volunteer staff packs up supplies and head out into libraries, schools, coffee shops, community centers, even living rooms to bring meaningful art making experiences to children right where they are. Because of generous support from the community, our classes are free to the students who take them.

FLY open studio sessions are an environment where children are self directed artists. Children at FLY practice decision making, problem solving, risk taking and creative synthesis in a safe and supportive environment. The adults at FLY are facilitators, supply-getters and safety keepers. Children at FLY see themselves as art makers in a fun and exciting place.
