About the class

Join us at the Sonoma Community Center for a special evening inspired by the classic Disney film, Lady and the Tramp. Bring your Valentine, Galentine, or just a pal. Tickets are sold in pairs.

You will create, make, and eat together across two classes. All lessons are bilingual, Spanish and English!

Each pair will enjoy a sip’n’paint led by local artist Jose Martinez. No experience necessary: just the desire to have fun and #trysomethingnew! We will be painting two halves of one image, and each person will take a side.

Next, you will learn how to make homemade pasta bolognese from scratch with Chef Maria Teresa, who will also serve you delicious appetizers and a wine pairing while you cook.

Everyone will then move to our “bistro” where each pair will sit and eat the delicious pasta dinner they’ve just created. While dining, our resident guitar instructor, Adam Traum, will serenade the group. Don’t miss this chance to treat yourselves to a magical night!

The class will take place on Monday, February 12th, from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. Space is limited, so book your spot today! Registration is available on a sliding scale. A two-ticket purchase is required (multiples of two).

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.

Jose Martinez


Jose Martinez is a resident artist with the Mare Island Art Studios (formerly known as the Coal Shed Studios).  He is a trusted advocate for youth and works at the Napa Valley College and at Sonoma Ballooning. He has a BA in Studio Painting and Art History from San Francisco State University.

Jose Martinez uses oil on canvases and panels to portray average, everyday people—often those who in one way or another have had an impact on his life.
Jose’s desire is to capture the beauty and intricate nature of the human experience, be that through painting, drawing, or photography. Through his use of light, shadow, and hue, he reveals a story, highlights an emotion, or simply captures a moment suspended in time.
Jose is also dedicated to helping individuals express themselves by facilitating art classes. He believes that art is a positive outlet for expression and healing. Creativity sparks character growth, instills confidence, and engages the mind on a journey of self-discovery. Jose embraces art’s power to heal. Not only does he think that art offers an avenue for communication and self-reflection, it also allows us to reinvent ourselves.
