Scottsdale Artists’ School, Inc
In 1983, a small group of Arizona artists and community leaders met with the goal to create a place of inspiration, where artists of all ages and skill levels could learn from the best working artists in the country. Thanks to their vision, Scottsdale Artists’ School was founded. Starting with just one studio, the first workshop was held that September. A decade later with student, donor and civic support, the School expanded and moved into historic Loloma elementary school, tucked in the heart of the Scottsdale Arts District.
Over time, the School has evolved into one of America’s foremost art institutions, offering a robust slate of art programs for adults along with a youth academy for children and teens. The School’s curriculum is grounded in fundamental art theory and practice, but also embraces innovative genres and methods.
The success of the school is due to the quality of instructors, all of whom are professional working artists. The School also has a dedicated faculty of talented local artists who enrich the curriculum and have made the School what it is today.
Scottsdale Artists’ School operates six fully equipped studios and offers over 200 diverse programs annually. The School sees 3500+ visitors annual from all areas of the country and world.
