Arrowmont’s Community Classes are an opportunity for the residents of our local community to take advantage of Arrowmont’s quality art instruction and professionally equipped studio facilities. Classes are fun and relaxed, and are a great way to meet new friends in a creative learning environment. Whether you want to enhance your child’s art experiences, start a new hobby for your own enjoyment, or are looking to grow as an already established artist, community classes are certain to light that creative spark! Classes are taught by Arrowmont’s Artists-in-Residence, local and regional artists and offer a wide selection of media for all ages and ability levels.
Adult Classes are offered in a variety of media and are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Registered students also have access to their class studio on Tuesday and Thursdays from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. At least two students must be working in the studio at the same time. Adult classes are for students 18 years old or older. 2014 classes will be held from January 14 - February 20.
Children and Young Adult Classes will meet for five consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 am to Noon. Each class is designed for a specific grade level group which is indicated in the class description. The class fee covers the cost of all instruction and materials. All children's classes are $100 and will be held January 11, 18, 25, and February 1 & 8, 2014.
Most classes welcome students at all levels, but a few require previous experience or skills. That information is included in the class description. Those with more experience are welcome to join any class with the understanding that they will participate in class projects and use the materials and equipment being provided within the format of the class.
All classes will require special materials, most of which are available in Arrowmont’s Artist Outfitters Store. A materials list will be provided to all students with their registration confirmation. Students are responsible for the cost of all personal materials for the class. Some shared materials will be provided and the cost is included in the class fee following each class description.
A limited number of scholarships based on financial need are available for adult and children’s classes. Please submit a letter explaining why you or your child should be considered for a scholarship at the time of registration.
