The Sunnyvale Art Club (SAC) was originally founded in 1959 as "Community Arts and Crafts" by Mrs. Emma Swails. The original charter states: "May all our creative arts be given equal consideration and may all our members share equal rights".
We want our club to be a pleasant, educational and supportive place for our members.
New members are welcomed in all our activities and events and we are more than willing to answer your questions at any time.
All cultures and traditions are welcomed. No residency or geographical limits apply to membership.

Where:  In-person meetings are held at the Sunnyvale Senior Center, 550 E. Remington Dr., Sunnyvale, CA, in the Laurel Room.

Some Virtual meetings via Zoom. Meeting Link and passcode provided via email to members.


Who: We are a group of very friendly , supportive (and yes, very "artistic") people from the general Sunnyvale area and neighboring cities, who work in various media.
