Support the Arts in Scottsdale

During the COVID-19 crisis, our doors are temporarily closed but the cost to support the arts continues. Please consider giving a donation today to support the arts in Scottsdale.

With help from supporters like you, nearly 400,000 people experience our events every year. We cannot do all of these amazing things without your support.

More than just creative expression, the arts develop crucial skills including problem solving, empathy and creativity. They play an essential role in early childhood brain development; improve student engagement, retention and success in school; and promote mental, physical and social well-being for all ages. Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation increases the vitality of our community through experiences that result in measurable learning outcomes and enduring understanding by offering a broad scope of programming ranging from matinee performances and museum programs, to hands-on activities, residencies, and arts enrichment workshops.

Alli Ortega Empty Bowls Benefit Sale

Explore the intersection of art and civic responsibility through this residency open to Scottsdale schools. Students work with teaching artists to integrate across the curriculum—using skills that include math, science, and language arts—and develop life skills, all through the design of a bowl. Student bowls are donated to the annual Alli Ortega Empty Bowls Benefit Sale to raise funds to fight hunger in our community.
