Preble arts is determined to fuel creativity in Preble County, fostering a community rich in arts and culture.
Our vision is a community in which every person can explore creativity through visual, interactive and educational experiences.
Preble Arts is driven to provide high quality art opportunities that engage and enrich the community, done efficiently with honesty and transparency.
Preble Arts (PCAA) operates the Visual Art Center located in downtown Eaton, Ohio. The center provides a space of creativity including opportunities to take classes in painting, featuring a state of the arts ceramics' studio, an arts studio, a music studio and more! Additionally, we have a paint your own pottery (PYOP) studio where anyone can drop by to create an original pottery piece or paint a canvas or explore metal stamping and resin jewelry making.
We are dedicated to make a creative community, identifying partners that can integrate art into their programs, furthering our mission. We have had many likely and unlikely partners such as the Preble County Juvenile Court, ASK Playground, Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Preble County Council on Aging, Preble County Pork Festival, Downtown Eaton Inc. and many others.
