Cartooning, art culinary camps at SCC
The Sonoma Community Center will offer a week of comic relief this summer with help from its partners at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa. “Creative Cartooning,” a weeklong camp led by professional illustrator Suyra O’Shea will take place at the center from June 18 to 22 from 9 a.m. to noon daily.
Founded in 2002, the Charles M. Schulz Museum educates visitors about the unique place of “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz in the history of cartooning.
With nearly 18,000 comic strips to its name, “Peanuts” is one of the most influential comic strips of all time.
The camp will focus on basic cartooning and illustration skills and is perfect for emerging artists ages 6 to 12. “Creative Cartooning” is one of six camps at the center this summer; each is presented by an expert in a different creative field.
In addition to “Creative Cartooning,” the center will offer “Culinary Adventures Camp” (June 25 to 29), “Clay for Kids Camp” (July 9 to 13), and “Teen Sensation Singing Class” with the center’s music director Cynthia Tarr (Tuesday evenings, June 19 to July 17).
All lessons are $175 or $157 for center members.
Finally, SCC will offer “Camp Millionaire,” financial literacy training for ages 10 to 16, on July 30 to 31 for $100. Financial aid is available.
