Wednesdays, June 6th – August 8th from 10am – 1pm

Community Studio is a free public art program for all ages offered in partnership with Empower Youth. The program, which had its first session from July through October of 2017, offers local residents a dedicated time and place for creativity. All are welcome! Guided by SOIL SERIES artists, Francesca Fiore and Hillary Wagner, Community Studio artists are invited to investigate place through making. Projects are carried out using a variety of materials, including those found on the ranch, and the process of making helps participants connect more deeply to their home and one another.

We encourage registration ahead of time, although drop-ins are also welcome. Register for the 2018 summer session here:

Become a monthly patron of a Community Studio Artist

As we gear up for the next session of Community Studio, which will run from May to August of 2018 and will culminate in another public exhibition, we are looking for a group of generous individuals to become patrons of our incredible artists so that we may offer them the best possible experience. A small monthly contribution on your part will go a long way toward providing our artists the resources they need.

To become a monthly patron, check out our Patreon or click on the link below:
