Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts is a national art education center. The School offers weekend, one- and two-week workshops for the beginner to advanced artist, taught by national and international practicing studio artists and university faculty. Students work and learn in professionally equipped studios on a 14-acre residential campus in Gatlinburg, TN.

A series of weekly classes are also offered for residents of the local community. Workshops and classes are offered in ceramics, fiber, metals/jewelry, painting, drawing, photography, warm glass, woodturning, woodworking, mixed media, books and paper. An Artists-in-Residence Program provides a supportive, stimulating work and learning environment for five early-career artists during a year-long residency.

Conferences and symposia bring together artists, art educators, collectors and others to work in the studios, engage in dialogue about making art and to discuss issues and trends in the field. The public is welcome year-round to visit the campus and view artwork by local, national and international artists in the School's five galleries, which offer a full schedule of changing exhibitions, attend evening presentations, and visit the Artists-in-Residence studios. The Marian Heard Library and Resource Center includes print and electronic materials for research, and displays work from the School's permanent collection. The Artist Outfitters Store offers tools and supplies for students on campus and artists in the community.
