Sawtooth’s Past, Present and Future

The Sawtooth School for Visual Art traces its history to 1945 when the Junior League, the Winston-Salem school system, and the City Recreation & Parks Department joined forces to create the Arts and Crafts Workshop.

Over the years, the organization has been housed in several different locations under a variety of names, but its mission to provide high-quality craft and visual art instruction to all members of the community has never changed.
