Our Artist of the Month is a new Desert Artists Club member and decorative painter extraordinaire, Evelyn Sundman. As you can see, her painting is both beautiful and functional. We are pleased to have her in the club.

Are you looking for an outlet for your creativity? Are you looking for forward to making friends who enjoy creating? There are groups in Sun Lakes for creative people who like being around other creative people. For artists, you are welcome at the Desert Artist’s Club, a weekly gathering of friendly people who paint, decorate gourds, make baskets, do scratchboard and generally like to hang out together. We meet year round in the Arts and Crafts Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club.

You can be an expert or a total beginner. We have a number of people who have been painting less than a year who benefit from the encouragement and advice of more experienced members. Everyone is friendly and non-judgmental!

We also have a library of painting videos that can be viewed in the Arts and Crafts Room or can be borrowed. We also offer classes periodically throughout the year. So stop working alone all week. Join us on Wednesdays.

A new feature the club is now offering is an open house viewing of our member’s work every second Wednesday from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. We also offer gentle solicited critiques of member’s work at that time. Come in and meet us.

The Desert Artists meet every Wednesday from 9:00 a.m.-until we get ready to go home in the Arts and Crafts Room at the Sun Lakes Country Club. Many of us stay for lunch. Our business meetings are held in the same place on the second Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. Requested critiques follow general meetings. Our annual dues are $10. For additional information contact our President Gary Neffenger at 480-201-5212 or e-mail [email protected] Don’t miss another week!

Finally, the Desert Artists would like to give a special shout out to the Board and staff of the Sun Lakes Country Club for their continued support. We truly appreciate you.
