Mission

Corelli Art and Forest School is a completely outdoor program that focuses on creative play and nature immersion. It is our belief that art and nature are essential foundations to creating well rounded and adaptive individuals. In addition to open-ended forest play, we introduce a wide variety of art materials and methods to help our students:

- Identify individual strengths and interests

- Develop fine motor skills

- Develop creative problem solving skills

- Work independently and collaboratively

- Respect and learn from the environment

It is our goal to provide a natural learning environment that we wish we had as children. Pulling from our experience in a variety of disciplines, we provide an early introduction to the traditional principles of art and curiosity driven learning.

In addition to the open-ended, child led sessions you would expect from a forest school, we provide teacher led activities, projects, and experiments each day.

About/Location

Located on 55 acres of old-growth forest in East Knoxville, Tennessee, our property covers a private mountain, old horse farm, and rocky outcrops. Wildflower meadows, cedar trees, and mossy ground cover are the perfect backdrop for art lessons and free play.

Corelli Art and Forest School is run by the professional and practicing artist team Corelli Art Studio, a husband and wife duo of outdoor enthusiasts.

Please message us for the address. Because this is a private property, please only visit during scheduled times or classes.
