Creative 360 Stage, Studios & Gallery

1517 Bayliss Street, Midland, 989.837.1885,


Creative 360 is a nonprofit, community-based organization – an environment where each person has an opportunity to become directly involved in the creative process. Programs, hands-on classes, theater shows and gallery exhibits offered by Creative 360 are designed specifically for children, adults, the elderly, those with special needs and more.


Tasty Tidbits – Did You Know?

  • Where a Kid can be a Kid! And an artist! And a creator! And…Happy!

Parents can bring their children to Creative 360’s studio space for full-on art exploration and quality time. The space, fun, time    and supplies – paint, markers, glue, etc. – are all available by donation! (Phone first to check for available space.)

  • Very Special Artists

       The current gallery exhibit at Creative 360 is titled V.S.A., Very Special Artists. All art was created by children and adults with disabilities, physical and mental. The next gallery exhibit will feature artists aged 80 and older, showcasing the fact that elders have great value and keen artistic insight. Can you say “conversation opener” with your children?

  • Grow Together

Creative 360 offers a community garden space and related classes from May – October. Participants can maintain a 12 x 14 space for $17, and weekly classes are available offering an art project related to gardening and growing.

“We’re not necessarily trying to make everyone an artist, but to give them exposure to the arts” says Carol Speltz, director of Creative 360. “We encourage self-expression and creativity, through the arts.”
