Root Division stands against deep-rooted systemic racism. We acknowledge our ongoing need for open dialogue, continued growth, and increased equity -- nationally, locally, and within our own organization. As part of this process, we dedicate ourselves to be active listeners, learners, and visionaries for anti-racism, using our organization as a platform to amplify voices for justice.

We’re excited to release the first of many online classes, workshops, and demos so that you can get creative at home. Check out the current offerings and stay tuned for more to come!
In honor of what would have been our 15th Annual New Growth: Youth Education Showcase & Free Family Arts Workshop this May, we're bringing you clips from the classrooms to brighten your days. Root Division’s Youth Education Program trains and places artists to teach free art classes in 9 after school partner sites. Check out some pieces of our showcase and stay tuned for more to come!

Root Division's Studio Artists, as well as other Bay Area professional artists, guide students through a variety of art processes. The classes and workshops are the perfect length for the busy and non-committal, while allowing enough time for students to leave with a handmade masterpiece and sense of accomplishment.
