The arts have played an important role in providing learning opportunities for Hazard Community and Technical College students in Knott County.
The Hazard Community and Technical College Associate of Fine Arts Program is based at the Kentucky School of Craft in Knott County, a facility equipped for traditional and contemporary art practices. Courses include Digital Photography and Introduction to Art. The School of Craft offers a place where students can work, store and display the projects they have been creating all semester. The Associate of Fine Arts Program at HCTC is led by Program Coordinator Michael Flynn. Flynn noted, "It is very important for the student to have a place where their projects can develop. I encourage my students to realize successful works of art take both time and planning."
The Kentucky School of Craft and Appalachian Artisan Center work closely together to bring an economically vibrant arts community to eastern Kentucky.
In conjunction with the classes for credit, the School of Craft also offers programing that includes four week-long workshops in blacksmithing and woodworking. These classes have provided an opportunity for those who cannot take a 16-week course.
