Tennessee Tech University’s School of Art, Craft & Design, including the Appalachian Center for Craft, offers eight Bachelor of Fine Arts degree concentrations accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. We also provide a non-degree Craft Certificate program. Faculty and resident artists are respected and accomplished professionals in the fields of clay, design, education, fibers, glass, metals, painting, wood, and exhibitions. Our students have access to small class sizes, individual attention, classic techniques and fresh perspectives on contemporary craft as they work in our very well-equipped studios. We offer a variety of visiting artist and craft workshops throughout the year, creating an expanding network of contacts and career opportunities for our students. In addition, we offer outreach programming for high school students and their teachers, a retail sales gallery representing over 150 regional and national artists, an artist residency program and a number of annual events and programs for regional high school students, families, and the community. The school of art, craft and design has produced successful studio and production artists, elementary school to college-level art educators, and nationally and internationally renowned craft artists.
