Soup is Love Project: Last Weekend to Make Bowls Benefiting Off Center!

February 3 and 4, 10am-4pm

After 12 months we have made about 800 bowls with 100 community participants. The proceeds will benefit OFF CENTER Community Arts Project.

OFF Center Community Arts Project was founded in 2001 by art therapists, artists and other community members whose vision was to have an all-inclusive arts studio where the process of making art in a supportive community and safe environment would provide healing and build community — especially for those most marginalized in our community.
