Hidden in the Hills Artist Studio Tour

The mission of the Hidden In The Hills Artist Studio Tour is to provide an opportunity for the public to visit the workspaces of dedicated artists in the Sonoran Foothills, to learn about the artist's methodology and process and to purchase directly from them in a friendly, engaging atmosphere that showcases quality art. 

A signature event of the non-profit Sonoran Arts League, the 2021 tour will feature artists in various studio locations throughout the scenic Desert Foothills communities of Cave Creek, Carefree, and North Scottsdale.

Now in its 25th year, the free, self-guided studio tour offers seasoned collectors and art enthusiasts a rare chance to observe artists at work in their private studios during the six-day tour. The studio tour also attracts holiday shoppers seeking original, unique gifts. Each studio has one or more guest artists who also display and sell their work. All artists are Sonoran Arts League members, and several will be coming from different parts of the state to participate in the annual event.

Come discover your next treasure Hidden in The Hills!
