For over 50 years, the Sonoma Community Center has supported the artistic and educational life of the city, by sponsoring public programming. It offers classes in pottery, painting, music, yoga, jazzersize and various elements of personal development. Its large auditorium regularly supports theater performances, movie nights, and gallery shows. The artist-in-residence program brings recognition and support to professional and student artists. The space also functions as an incubator for non-profits, and many local groups have gotten their start here: including the Boys and Girls club of Sonoma. Volunteers and members are welcome, check the website for details.
