WEEKLY ART + DESIGN CLASSES

Join us for our once-a-week classes at Roots + Wings School of Art and Design!   For each age group, our instructors will work with students on exploring a variety of mediums, tools and techniques.  During the summer, some classes might be a one-time class while others will work in a series.

We feel strongly that our student's voices are heard as we choose subjects and themes to study....
