About the class

Join us for a night of self-expression every third Wednesday of the month.  We are partnering with Positive Images to provide a safe and inclusive space for teens to find their artistic voice through radical self-expression. Each month we will explore a new art theme including a demonstration from a professional artist and all the materials needed to make the project.  We will also provide additional art materials if you just need a space to hang out and make your own art! Pizza dinner and soft drinks included!  Bring your friends!  This club offers 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.

This event is for teens 10 – 17 years old.

About the instructor


Instructor / Artist

AV (she/her) is an artist, stop-motion animator, sculptor, and puppeteer! By day she works as a moldmaker for clay sculptures, and by night she does freelance stop-motion for YouTube channels. She loves working and experimenting with any sort of material, from fabric, to wire, to 3D printing, to resin, to in this camp’s case, clay!

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.
