Glass Roots was founded in January 2001 with the belief that communities can be transformed and elevated through the arts.
We knew that the youth of our community held enormous potential which could be realized if only they were empowered with the gift of creative self-expression. By teaching our students how to master this tradecraft, we not only reveal their immense creative potential, but also tap the cognitive abilities which can help them with school, work, and life.
