NEWS FROM THE CENTER

The Knoxville Arts & Fine Crafts Center is a teaching and learning facility through the City of Knoxville Parks & Recreation Department.  Here at KAFCC we strive to provide the Knoxville community with a wide range of classes for all ages.  Join us on the dance floor or in the pottery studio this Fall for a break from your routine!

This season we have some very special events to share with you.  On exhibit during the month of August is our very own under painting instructor, Diann Bishop, alongside her class who will have their paintings on display.  September we will feature UT painting grad, Yuying Yan.  During the months of October and November, Bridget Daunais will have her paintings and jewelry on display and for sale!  Check our website and Facebook Page for updates on events and scheduling!

Hope to see you!
