We checked in with local kids who love art, music, theater or dance to find out what makes them tick.

Whether your child is a toddler or a teenager, there’s no doubt that the arts has a place in his or her life. Countless studies have shown that children who are actively engaged in music, drawing, dancing or pretend play are the recipients of many benefits. Simply drawing a picture means growing fine motor and language skills, as well as decision-making skills as he decides on things like what to draw, what colors to use and where to place items on his canvas. And Americans for the Arts finds that children who regularly participate in the arts are more likely to succeed academically.
