Cultivating Creative Minds

Roots + Wings School of Art and Design nurtures and encourages the natural creativity within people of all ages through innovative art and design education, community collaboration and a focus on both local and global impact.  

With programs for ages 3 up through 133, students at Roots + Wings School of Art and Design learn the principles of design and art expression while exploring their creative voices and applying innovative and creative problem-solving skills to real-life situations within their communities.  Our main programs include our Visual Arts Preschool, After-school Community Design Lab (including three off-site locations), Spring and Summer Creativity Camps and Design Studios, Adult workshops, and Art + Design Studio classes.  

Our Roots + Wings Creative Community offers activities and resources for creative learning online.   We also have a Roots + Wings Outreach program that offers art and design programming to children in all communities in Asheville.  In addition we have our Grace Eaton Scholarship Fund that helps support other scholarship opportunities for programs.   The Roots + Wings Creative Campus, our headquarters building, is located in the Oakley neighborhood of Asheville!  Come out and create with us!
