Desert Artists Club

We welcome March here in the desert as our landscape continues to inspire artists’ appreciation of its unique grandeur. It seems to be the best time of the year for us here in Arizona’s Valley to be outside drenching ourselves in the easy temperatures and nature’s gifts.

The Desert Artists Club (DAC) meets each Tuesday afternoon from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Ceramics Room (A-8) in Cottonwood. We come together to be with other artists and work (relax and play) on our own art projects. We bring our own supplies and work in our own medium. We are a casual club with no meetings or dues. The DAC has been in existence for close to two decades. Artists come to share with other artists their love of art and to be inspired by what others are creating. It is fun to create together. Any artist in the three HOAs of Sun Lakes may join. We have social times on occasion and share our art, experiences, and our yummy treats. It’s always a fun time.

Remember to attend the annual Art at the Lakes on March 4 starting at 9 a.m. It is held across from the tennis courts in Cottonwood. The firefighters will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers for a quick lunch. There will be around 100 artists displaying and/or selling their art. Some of our members will be participating. This is a premier event that always delights those who attend. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity right here in our community. You won’t be disappointed. You can purchase raffle tickets for items that have been donated. Look for the article in this Splash edition for all the details.

If you are new to Sun Lakes or wish to just come and see what we are all about, stop in some Tuesday and check out our group. The best time is 3 to 5 p.m. Feel free to ask questions and see if this might be a fit for you.
