Discover your artistic side at Southwestern Michigan College!
Students enrolled at Southwestern Michigan College can explore their performing side through band, choir, theatre, and dance; or realize their artistic yearnings through SMC’s visual arts classes that include ceramics, drawing, graphic design, painting, and photography.
SMC’s Art Gallery in the Dale A. Lyons Building on the Dowagiac campus provides a perfect venue for student works as well as faculty exhibits. In addition, throughout the year, regional artists exhibit their work in the SMC Art Gallery. Admission to any of the exhibits is always free and open to the public.
For those students who are at home on the stage, the theatre in the Dale A. Lyons Building offers opportunities in the performing arts of theatre, band, choral, and dance. Each semester, students perform publicly via a play or musical production and in concert.
