The arts are so important to local communities, as we just wrote about Hill Auditorium in downtown Ann Arbor, readers who are looking to move to other parts of the Ann Arbor metro area will be excited to learn that they don’t have to just go into downtown Ann Arbor to enjoy the arts, other surrounding communities often have their own local arts.
Look at Chelsea, Michigan, for instance. Chelsea is home to the fun non-profit community organization the “Chelsea Center for the Arts” or CCA for short. The CCA’s mission statement is “Developing, fostering and promoting music and visual art in Chelsea, Michigan and the surrounding communities.”
The Chelsea Center for the Arts, located at 400 Congdon St., Chelsea, MI 48118 encourages you to discover new skills, refine existing ones, meet friends old and new and participate in diverse music and art programs led by hands on instructors. The Center was founded back in 1995 and serves the City of Chelsea and the surrounding areas in Washtenaw County. What started out to be a very niche organization serving the few has now become a true community asset and amenity and is a pillar in the local area. They even have their own Facebook Page!

As for visual arts, there are creative visual art instructors who teach, encourage and inspire you to have fun and experiment, there are classes, workshops and more in the following fields:
Of course for those that might not want to take lessons in music or art there is always the other side to the art world, that is the enjoyment of art by others! There is, whats called the Center Gallery at the CCA which showcases fine art by instructors, students and other local artists. The gallery features paintings, photography, stoneware, sculptures, jewelry and much more! Best yet, the exhibitions are free and open to the public. Just think if you did take a class you could have your work exhibited!
The Chelsea Center for the Arts is definitely a great community asset and helps benefit the lives of residents in the area. It is no wonder that Chelsea is such a desirable community to live in and a top relocation destination.
