For over 40 years, the Sonoran Arts League has promoted art, artists and art education through leadership and service with the guiding philosophy that art is essential to the well-being of life and our community. The League is a non-profit organization serving local, regional and statewide members, drawing friends and followers throughout the USA and Canada.
EXCITEMENT, ENGAGEMENT, ENRICHMENT
The 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 artists practice in multiple disciplines: sculptors, painters, potters, weavers, sketchers, jewelers and artists who create with glass, metal, wood, batik, mosaic, gourds, pastel, pencil and photography - nearly every artistic medium known. Diversity makes us strong and draws new partners in steadily increasing numbers.
Currently, over 700 artists are in the League.
