With your support, Root Division has been cultivating community-minded artists and arts-minded community, with growing impact, year after year.
Root Division's Adult Education Program offers highly innovative and affordable art classes. Root Division's Studio Artists, as well as other Bay Area professional artists, guide students through a variety of art processes, and it all happens in a friendly and engaging environment. 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.
TASTE 2018 promises to be a night to remember! Over 20+ famed local chefs and mixologists create culinary treats onsite in our gallery and studios in an evening of food-inspired art and art-inspired food. We're also featuring a silent auction of art, products, and gift certificates from over 80 local artists and businesses!
