Artists Helping Artists is an ongoing adult art educational program that takes place at the WonderRoot Community Arts Center. All of the workshops taught at WonderRoot are led by professional artists who give their time, knowledge, and experience to lead workshops that are economically accessible to all. Classes are meant to encourage our members to explore disciplines outside of their primary medium, to give students the opportunity to learn from an expert in the field, and to build community.

More information about all of our current Artists Helping Artists workshops can be found by clicking the headers above. If you are interested in teaching an Artists Helping Artists workshop at WonderRoot, please fill out our Artists Helping Artists proposal form.

As of October 1, 2014, Artists Helping Artists workshops will operate on a Pay What You Can model.  

There is a required entry fee of $1/class. Students are encouraged to pay class fess at whatever level their current life situation allows. Students’ fee level will not be shared and students will not be prioritized based on the size of the fee they pay. Class fees support the WonderRoot Teaching Artist’s compensation, studio maintenance, and material costs.

It is important to WonderRoot to honor our commitment to providing educational opportunities to our existing members on previously established terms. Prior to October 1, 2014, Artists Helping Artists workshops were a component of WonderRoot membership. All WonderRoot members whose annual memberships begun from October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014 will have the option of taking Artists Helping Artists workshops at no cost.
