Community Studio

Community Studio is a free art program for all ages held in our Barn Studio at the Empower Youth Ranch (2800 State Rt. 125, Bethel, OH 45106).

As part of SOIL SERIES: A Social Drawingwe are working to build a safe space for exploring new ideas in the heart of Bethel. Our Community Studios offer a dedicated time and place for creativity, as well as guided activities and prompts. Led by the artists of SOIL SERIES, Community Studio will invite participants to broaden their definition of art and follow new pathways of thinking and making.

If you or your child would like to participate, please contact us at



Thank you to all who participated in and attended our inaugural exhibition at the Empower Youth Ranch on October 27th. We are so grateful to have such a supportive community, and we were thrilled to share our work and our amazing students’ work with you!

After much thought we have decided to press pause on Community Studio Saturdays until further notice. Instead, we are working on developing new upcoming programming that will be more involved and less frequent as we focus on preparing for the next steps of the project. We will resume regular Community Studios in the new year. In the meantime, stay tuned for more information on our upcoming special programs.

Students who have not yet picked up their work from the exhibition can contact us at to set up a pick up time.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to sharing our plans with you soon!
