The Sawtooth School for Visual Art is the only community art school serving the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area. For nearly 70 years, Sawtooth has offered classes and workshops in a variety of visual arts and crafts, including painting and drawing, ceramics, metals, glass, wood, fibers, photography, digital art, and more.

Healing and Wellness through the Arts, a pilot project of the Sawtooth School, helps adult oncology patients use art as a means of expressing loss and grief. Through partnerships with cancer centers at Novant Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health, the program offers on-site exhibitions, demonstrations, and short workshops.
