Celebrating the Arts For All



Located on the Swain County High School campus, the Swain Arts Center serves the educational and cultural needs of both students and the community. Performing Arts programs include music, drama, dance, and multicultural performances. Visual Arts are exhibited in the gallery, and arts workshops in a variety of media are offered throughout the year. The facility is available for use by qualified independent organizations for compatible events and activities.
