Welcome to the Sonoran Arts League

with the most established arts league in Arizona. 

Artists and art enthusiasts are invited to take advantage of social, educational, promotional and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. 

The Sonoran Arts League provides an environment where creative individuals with similar interests, values and goals form alliances that benefit their work and support the community through educational programs.

The League is comprised of more than 450 art enthusiasts – 95% are artists practicing in multiple disciplines: sculptors, painters, potters, weavers, sketchers, jewelers and artists who create with glass, batik, mosaic, gourds, pastel, pencil and photography – nearly every artistic medium known.

Diversity makes us strong and draws new partners in steadily increasing numbers.

The SONORAN ARTS LEAGUE is a non-profit organization serving local, regional and statewide members, drawing friends and followers throughout the USA and Canada. 

 We believe that artistic awareness is essential to life and community.
