Arrowmont’s workshops are designed to provide creative opportunities for anyone who wants to learn new skills and be energized and inspired. Weekend, one-week and two-week sessions offer a concentrated experience of working in a professionally equipped studio with dedicated and talented instructors and other students. Students of varied experience levels, ages, and backgrounds work side-by-side, exchanging ideas and techniques. Workshops are open to students 18 years old or older, at all skill levels unless indicated otherwise in the course description. Instructors are national and international practicing studio artists and faculty at colleges and universities. Workshops are small, generally 10-12 students of varying experience and age but with a common goal of working hard, learning new skills and being creative. Due to safety precautions related to the pandemic, the enrollment capacity for workshops has been lowered for 2021 in order that workshops can continue to take place with safe social distancing. Class size in 2021 is limited to approximately five to six students.
Students should be aware that in many workshops they may be working with tools and equipment which, if improperly or carelessly used, can cause injury. All workshops will include a safety review to inform students about proper use of tools and equipment in the studio. By registering for a workshop, students assume the risk of working with the tools, equipment, and materials provided by Arrowmont, and neither the instructor, the School nor its employees will be responsible for injuries received by students as a result of the improper or careless use of those tools and equipment.
