About the class
Youth Arts Holiday Family Workshop
Holiday Foam Printing – Cards and Garlands!
Learn to foam print holiday cards and paper garlands to decorate your home and to give as gifts for the holidays!
In this holiday printmaking workshop, printmakers Kelly Autumn and Maggie Thomas will show you how to hand print foam plates to make beautiful imagery for decorations or gifts.
You will experiment, play and draw images using a variety of cut shapes made out of soft foam plates. Kelly and Maggie will guide you through the process of foam printing using water soluble inks. We will practice re-inking the foam plates several times to make multiple prints and try different variations which can be repeated images on many different kinds of paper.
This class will have all hands-on time to make art that you can take home and enjoy for the holidays and for years to come. No experience is required!
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.

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.
