Educational Assistantships are an integral part of Arrowmont's operations, and provides an opportunity for people with limited financial resources to participate in classes. Educational assistants receive class tuition, housing and meals during their assistant commitment.
Travel, materials fees and other art supplies are the responsibility of the student and are to be paid weekly. Classes are awarded based on availability.

“Touch: Interactive Craft” is a national juried exhibition organized by Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. This year’s theme invited submissions that involve viewer interaction, require audience manipulation for the piece’s creation or enjoyment, or gain significance by being touched. “Touch,” acknowledges that traditional craft forms are rooted in their functionality, and as such are often created to be handled. Chosen by juror Emily Zilber, the works selected for the exhibition reflect impressive levels of craftsmanship and engage the viewer in innovative ways, breaking the typical passive viewing barriers of a museum or gallery setting.
