About the class

In this workshop, New Yorker magazine cartoonist Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell will teach you how to find humor and inspiration in your day-to-day life and translate it into relatable, well-crafted and funny cartoons. This class is suitable for all levels – no drawing expertise required – perfect for friend groups or a date night! Repeat students welcome. All materials (paper, ink, watercolors, etc.) are provided through the materials fee. A glass of wine (for 21+) and light refreshments are included.

Please share any special considerations (medical, physical, learning) that will help your instructor make your class accessible and accommodating for you. You can share these considerations when registering or by emailing Sean at

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.
