Scottsdale Artists’ School Beaux Arts Fundraiser

“Beaux Arts 2018” is a combined 35th anniversary celebration and annual fundraiser. The theme for this very special event is Dream BIG in honor of Maxine Johnston, one of the School’s original founders. It was her dream to bring top-notch artists to Scottsdale as a resource to students of all ages in a growing art community, and her hard work and vision continue to be realized every day. Maxine, who continues to support and guide the School, will serve as the honorary chair for the event.

The evening features a silent auction containing a variety of artwork — including oil paintings, watercolors, drawings, and sculptures — from well-known professional artists. A limited set containing juried work from our student artists will also be available in the silent auction. In addition, a live auction of select art and travel packages will be held. Included in the live auction will be a painting by Russell Case, signature artist at Scottsdale Artists’ School. Guests may also support SAS by purchasing raffle tickets. One of the raffle prizes this year is a beautiful signature sculpture by Sandy Scott.
