Sonoma Community Center Releases Fall Catalog of Classes & Events

Sonoma, Calif. (September 3, 2021) – The Sonoma Community Center is proud to announce the release of its Fall Class Catalog. The exciting lineup of offerings in September, October, and November include classes in ceramics, fiber arts, fine arts, printmaking, and more. Both in-person and virtual classes are available.

“Our goal is really to offer something for everyone,” says Sonoma Community Center Executive Director Charlotte Hajer. “Whether you are an experienced artist or a beginner, and no matter what your preferred medium, we hope that our lineup of classes, events, happy hours, and other experiences entices you to stretch your creative muscles.”

On the cover of the newly released Fall Catalog stands the Community Center’s current Resident Artist, Gabo Martinez. Gabo describes herself as, “a colorful person.” And she is: her pottery glows with vibrant colors and hand-carved messages of amor.

You’ll find Gabo working in her studio, on a variety of colorful and captivating masterpieces, teaching a bi-lingual (English/Spanish) class (Fridays beginning September 17th), and hosting several workshops in October for Día de los Muertos, all leading up to her final community center show in November 2021. You’ll find lots more Día-themed classes and activities listed in the catalog as well, alongside information about the Community Center’s annual Day of the Dead Altar Lighting Ceremony on November 1.

Other catalog highlights are the incredible printmaking series, “Passport to Printmaking” (which also gives participants open access to the Community Center’s print studio), the free Queer Art Club (for teens 11 and up), US Map Embroidery, and an exciting variety of arts classes, with world-class ceramics, after-school, and fiber arts programming. Our fall programming features wonderful new teachers who represent a diversity of backgrounds, and who are excited to work with our community.

Besides the classes and events listed in the Fall Catalog, additional offerings continue to be added weekly – including happy hour events, pop-up classes, and more.
