Sawtooth School for Visual Art is dedicated to providing fine arts and craft education to our community regardless of age, ability, ethnicity, race, religion, philosophical or political beliefs, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, nationality, geographic origin, and socioeconomic status. We value the respect of all in our community, no matter their background, and are committed to maintaining an environment free of discrimination in all of our studios. 

Our goal is for our faculty, staff, students, board, donors, vendors, and volunteers to be inclusive of the racial, ethnic, gender, and economic diversity of Winston-Salem and the surrounding area. We value and respect the variety of opinions and perspectives that our diverse community can offer. Sawtooth is committed to continually growing to make our studios and spaces a safe learning environment for all.
