Join us for a fun family class where you’ll have the opportunity to make delicious Churros and create your own clay pots using the coil building technique. The class will be divided into two parts: one hour in the kitchen and one hour in the art room. After the class, your coil pots will be fired and ready for pickup within 2-4 weeks. This class is perfect for families looking for a creative and tasty activity to do together. Plus, it will be taught in both Spanish and English, making it accessible to even more families. Don’t miss out on this unique experience!
I completed my mathematics undergraduate studies in the National University of Mexico and my graduate work in UC Berkeley. I also have a MFA from Cal Arts in Post-Studio Art, I have taught all levels of math in Mexico City, Oaxaca, Mexico, the Hebrew University in Jerusalem as well as in the Community Colleges in Berkeley and Oakland. I also taught photography and multi-media at the Bezalel art academy in Jerusalem.
I have developed several courses that specifically deal with the intersection of Math and Art. For example:
Mathematical Ideas for Artist,
Space; one word for many concepts,
Expanding our Consciousness.
These courses were taught at Cal Art, the Bezalel Art Institute in Jerusalem and at CCA in Oakland/San Francisco.
When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
