Children's House breaks ground on new art wing
GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich. —
The Children's House in Traverse City is expanding its art program thanks to a generous donation.
The school broke ground on a new art wing Tuesday afternoon.
The 1500 sq. foot addition will include dedicated rooms for music, painting and pottery.
The project is ahead of schedule thanks to McKeel and Soon Hagerty, who feel that a thriving art program is vital.
"I hope to see them be doing pottery and painting and sculpture and playing music," said Tammy Hagerty, who donated to the project. "In the past music was just in a little room that didn't really benefit. Creativity takes space and if you look around this campus, you'll see there is space for creative thinking and thought process and that art and music needs that kind of space."
The project is expected to be done in April.
