Visual & Performing Arts

The visual and performing arts are a big part of campus life at SMC.

They provide an outlet for students to unleash their talents and hone their craft.

Our theatre productions, band ensembles and award-winning choral ensembles are open to everyone, regardless of major. Art classes in everything from ceramics to photography challenge students to try new techniques and perfect their skills.
