Continuing its service to teachers and to the region, Arrowmont is offering the third workshop week dedicated to Appalachian teachers and Appalachian arts and crafts. Legacy offers teachers the opportunity to learn in Arrowmont’s creative environment with the support of full scholarships including tuition, lodging, meals, and a completion stipend to K-12 educators from any discipline.
Legacy provides information and skills building in traditional arts, crafts, and culture and teaches how traditional craft relates to, and may be used to enhance teaching other subjects. Workshops are offered in a range of media. Educators may choose which workshops they have interest in. The week has been designed so that teachers have time to interact, share ideas, and build a supportive network. The week offers additional evening programming and demonstrations so that participants are able to learn about Appalachian arts and infusing it into their classroom.
If your school is located in one of the counties listed below, we encourage you to apply for Legacy: Appalachian Arts for Appalachian Teachers. This program is not limited to arts teachers – it is open to all K-12 educators teaching any subject. We encourage you to invite your colleagues to also apply.
Located on 13-wooded acres in downtown Gatlinburg, the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Arrowmont is an oasis. Once on campus, participants will be treated to the Arrowmont experience with needs anticipated and met, including housing and excellent meals prepared by our talented chef and kitchen staff. Special dietary and mobility needs are accommodated*. An immersive experience, Legacy is an opportunity for teachers to learn a new craft, enhance teaching skills, and have time to re-charge, grow and reflect.
To apply, go to arrowmont.slideroom.com and upload a one-to-two-page letter of interest describing why you want to participate in Legacy. In additional to the letter, there will be a questionnaire in the application asking for contact information, name of the school where you teach, the county where the school is located, subject/discipline/grade you teach, whether others from your school have applied, and your first, second, third workshop choices.
