We are partnering with Positive Images to provide a safe and inclusive space for teens to find their artistic voice through radical self expression. In this two week camp students will explore themes that matter to them through a variety of unconventional art forms led by Bay Area artists.  Students will also learn how art can be used as an outlet to communicate issues important to them. This camp will be a total of two weeks, and youth are welcome to attend either one, or both weeks of Queer Art Camp. 

 Students are invited to attend one or both weeks of camp. 

Week one (July 17-21) will focus on outward forms of self expression. Artists will guide students in exploration of their artistic self through various art forms including movement, fashion design, poetry and more! This camp will offer an artistic community of inclusion for all identities of gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity.

(Positive Images is a grassroots organization whose mission is to provide support, advocacy, and education to Sonoma County’s LGBTQIA+ community. We nurture positive self-image through creating an affirming environment where everyone can explore their identities, develop leadership skills and participate in building a just and equitable society)

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.

Financial aid is handled on an individual basis. If you think you qualify, follow the link below to apply.
