Saluting our young artists

This Spring the Sonoran Arts League salutes our community’s young Artists at the 24th Celebration of Art. Over 100 students, 3rd to 12th grade are selected by their Visual Arts Teachers for their excellence in the Arts. Each student has a piece on display in the Cactus Shadows High School Fine Arts Center and all are called on stage with their teacher. Every student selected receives an Incentive Award. The Leagues’ Youth Art Committee organizes the event and orders fabulous art supplies that are assembled into the Incentive Awards for an “ARTFUL” summer.

Claire Lawrence

Each year an outstanding senior is chosen to receive the top honor, this year Claire Lawrence is the 44th winner of the Jeff Cross Memorial Harmony Hollow Bronze Bell Award. Many of the recipients of the Jeff Cross Bronze Bell Award have gone on to make their living in the Arts.

“Thank you CCUSD’, Education & Community Services for sponsoring the Celebration of Art at Cactus Shadows High School Fine Arts Center. The student art exhibit is the ‘Best of the Best’ and showcases a great visual arts program in our local schools. A full house on April 5. Families, friends, teachers and students felt well celebrated.”
