We are excited about 2019 Workshops and our new soon-to-be-published website! See Schedule page for current offerings.
Welcome to the Arkansas Craft School. Our craft studio, located in the heart of beautiful, historic downtown Mountain View, Arkansas, houses a variety of craft and art workshops to hone your already established skills, or open new vistas for your creative spirit. Our courses in wood, metal, glass, clay, fiber and studio arts, honor the traditional roots of craft forms while inviting an investigation of these materials for their potential as contemporary visual art forms. Mountain View is a destination for many seeking a peaceful and creative get-away to the Ozark Mountains. This charming town provides Craft School students lodging options within walking distance including motels, cabins, and bed-and-breakfasts. Our school is situated on North Peabody Ave, on the corner of the Courthouse Square, allowing students to have access to an assortment of cafes, restaurants, shops, and galleries – all within a few blocks. Also known for its folk music, Mountain View often has impromptu evening jam sessions where local musicians routinely bring out their fiddles, banjos and dulcimers to delight visitors. Mountain View is a wonderful destination for nurturing creativity and finding inspiration.
We hope you will join us.
