Our educational art demonstrations cover a wide range of media and are taught by professional artists and teachers. We also have lectures by art historians and product experts.


There is an art contest at each of our meetings. Bring in one piece of art. We will vote for an Artist of the Month to be featured on this site! 

2018 Keiko Tanabe Workshop


Small art workshops are held periodically in the community during the year. They are taught by professional artists. and vary by member interests. They provide growth and networking opportunities for our members and guests. 


Exhibiting members are provided opportunities to display their works around Orange County. We recently partnered with Friends of the Laguna Niguel Library to open the Friends Gallery and we maintain a display case in the Mission Viejo Library. We also exhibit frequently at the Norman Murray Center in Mission Viejo.

Juried Show

“Spring Reflections” is our annual Juried Art Show. It is open to all local artists, judged by a professional juror, and displayed in the Mission Viejo Library. We had over 50 local artist participate in 2019.


Members participate in several outdoor art shows in the Saddleback Valley such as Arts Alive and Paint the Lake in Mission Viejo, Mission Viejo Art Sale, and the Laguna Niguel Art Sale. We welcome the opportunity to show in other areas.

Our art activities help us to learn, share, and grow!

Saddleback Art League is an active volunteer based arts organization. If you think of a great art idea and are willing to help implement it, we will get behind you to make it happen. We gather to learn, exhibit to share, and strive for all to grow artistically.
