Sonoran Arts League is a major force in the Visual Arts. Through their Youth Art program, Sonoran Arts League annually brings artists into CCUSD classrooms, grants scholarships, hosts a yearly tour of a major area art museum, and fills the Art Incentive Bags. Ten students chosen from each CCUSD Visual Arts Teacher are given a bag full or art books and supplies. The top student from each middle and high school is given a $25 certificate, and elementary students a $20 certificate good at the Sonoran Arts League Art Stuff Sale.
