Fall class schedule

In 2001, Fulton County opened its doors to the Southwest Arts Center, the first facility built by Fulton County solely for the arts. Located on a 27-acre campus in the quiet Cascade community, Southwest Arts Center is dedicated to providing quality arts instruction and programs in a positive and creative environment. The facility features classroom space, built specifically for arts instruction, visual art exhibition programming, and staged performances in the Black Box Theater.

Fulton County, under the guidance of the Fulton County Department of Arts & Culture, transformed the 19,000 square-foot Southwest Arts Center into 42,000 square-foot vibrant cultural campus, with the addition of the Performance Theater & Gallery, in 2008.  The Performance Theater & Gallery features a commissioned public art painting by acclaimed painter, Louis Delsarte, a 375-seat auditorium and theater, and the only fine art gallery in Southwest Fulton County.
