Root Division proudly presents New Growth 2017: EmPOWERing Peace, Justice & Love, our annual Youth Art Celebration & Exhibition, featuring hands-on family art-making activities alongside an exhibition of artwork made by students and instructors in Root Division’s free after school Youth Education Program. We are partnering with Youth Art Exchange again this year and will also be displaying work made in their visual and performing arts programming.

This family-friendly event includes complimentary refreshments, a mobile printmaking station, t-shirt tie-dying, flower crown creating, and live performances by Youth Speaks, Destiny Arts, Youth Art Exchange and San Francisco Rock Project! This event is free and open to the public with support from our fiscal sponsors, which are highlighted below.

Root Division’s Youth Education Program recruits, trains, and places our Studio Artists, volunteers and interns to teach free art classes in one of our nine partner sites, creating a link between practicing artists and the schools’ communities. All of Root Division’s programs serve a diverse group of students, most of which attend San Francisco Unified School District schools.
