Sawtooth School for Visual Art has been awarded a $52,500 grant from the Reynolds American Foundation. We will use these funds to make art classes and workshops accessible to children and adults with a demonstrated financial need. Scholarship guidelines and applications can be found online on our Scholarship Page.
“We truly believe at Sawtooth that everyone should have access to art education, especially here in the City of Arts and Innovation,” said Sawtooth Executive Director JoAnne Vernon. “Through this generous grant from the Reynolds American Foundation, we can level the playing field and offer opportunities to lower income families and individuals.”
Enrollment is currently underway for the summer session, with early registration ending on July 2. Sawtooth offers over 100 different classes and workshops each quarter for children and adults across all skill levels in a variety of arts and crafts. Programs include digital and darkroom photography, ceramics, painting and drawing, glass, metals, wood, fibers and printmaking.
