Community Studio is a free art program for all ages held in our Studio/Lab at the Empower Youth Ranch.
As part of SOIL SERIES: A Social Drawing, we wanted to build a safe space for new ideas in the heart of Bethel, and our Community Studios offer a dedicated time and place for creativity. Led by the artists of SOIL SERIES together with a team of Empower Youth interns, Community Studios invite participants to broaden their definition of art and follow new pathways toward creating.
We are very excited to announce our summer schedule! If you or your child would like to participate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
