Oakwood Artists League

Diane Hitt

2019 has been a good year for the Oakwood Artists League (OAL). We’ve had professional artist workshops and members of our group gave “new idea” workshops. Many enjoyed our art show in the arts and crafts courtyard during the 2019 IronOaks Open House.

We have 30 members. We welcomed four new members in December: Mona Gray, Patty Kogovsek, Mary Sanchez, and Zen Winters. Mona Gray paints in acrylics and was a Master Docent at the Phoenix Art Museum for 12 years. Patty has lived in Sun Lakes for four years and painted with acrylics for 15 years. Mary Sanchez has lived in Sun Lakes for five years and loves to travel. Mary is learning to paint with water mixable oils. Zen Winters is a snowbird who has been in Sun Lakes for 17 years. Zen is learning to paint with watercolors. She is also a member of the Sun Lakes Watermedia Club.

OAL is a fun group of artists. We love to experiment with new techniques and supplies. In December, we practiced painting with balloons. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact Joyce Weary at 480-802-9643.
