Improve your creativity skills by joining a class offered at the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts. This national art education center offers week long or weekend workshops for beginner to advanced level artists. Classes offered include ceramics, fiber, metals and jewelry, painting, drawing, photography, warm glass, woodturning, and woodworking. For both the art hobbyist and collectors of art, looking for the local charisma of the Smoky Mountains, should take a visit to Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Community. This historic 8-mile loop of artists and craftsmen has been named as the largest group of independent artisans in North America. In addition to arts and crafts, our loop also includes lodging, restaurants and cafés, candy shops, and more. As an added perk, there’s plenty of free parking and it is open all year round!
