At the Caswell Council for the Arts, we are eager to support, promote, and encourage local artists of all varieties, ages, and levels of experience. From young to old, amateur to professional, painter to musician, we believe in the value of the arts in our everyday lives, and work hard to encourage creativity and artistic expression in our community. If you are a local artist, let us know who you are. We would love to share opportunities with you, and help you to share what you do with others in the community.

Regional Artist Grants: The Caswell Council for the Arts is part of the NC Arts Council's Regional Artist Project Grant program that distributes dollars to regional consortium's of arts councils throughout the state.
