About the Soul Studio

The Dresner Foundation Soul Studio, a project of Friendship Circle, is a studio art program for adults with special needs that responds to each participant’s unique physical and cognitive conditions. Our goal is to encourage the creative growth of participants by helping to shape individualized paths to success in the world. Artwork made by Soul Studio artists is exhibited in our professionally curated exhibition space, visited by hundreds of people every week.

Soul Studio was launched in 2016, inside the Friendship Circle Farber Center, which also house the Soul Cafe, and an event space, all of which provide a loving and inclusive environment that encourages artistic self-expression, vocational training, and employment opportunities to adults with special needs.
