About Scottsdale Artists' School (SAS)
Scottsdale Artists’ School, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was founded in 1983 by a group of dedicated artists and community leaders who had a vision and desire to provide fundamental art training to those with an interest and passion for art. The School, located in the downtown Scottsdale Arts District, is a work of art in itself. Listed on the City of Scottsdale’s Historic Register, the building was constructed in 1928, and was home to the city’s second grammar school, Loloma Elementary. The School features glazed Saltillo tile floors and a distinctive gabled red tile roof, in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style. The School offers over 200 diverse art programs throughout the year including an innovative Youth and Teen Academy. The School’s local and visiting instructors include many of the nation’s leading artists, who are experienced and dedicated to their craft.
