Answer:
Along this line...In Hindman, KY, is a new extended campus of Hazard Community College. With a Community Development Initiative grant, some new buildings are being built in town...one of them being a technical college for the arts. Traditional Mountain Arts! The pottery curriculum is going up before the state curriculum committees now. Hindman is sort of an arts/crafts community. Kentucky Crafted is a major new tourism/commerce initiative statewide. Nice to see that we aren't just training people to be factory cogs, and that the traditional crafts are going to be supported in our educational system. I'm excited about it.
