Afterschool Programs


Art has the role in education of helping children become more like themselves instead of more like everybody else. -Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

Did you know our popular Art Classes and Afterschool Enrichment programs are available to students at their school and through your local Parks & Rec? We also offer onsite Weekend Workshops at our San Mateo Studio! We believe all children should have access to holistic art education and artistic expression! Our thoughtfully designed and time-tested curriculum provides an engaging, tactile and rewarding experience that is critical to healthy cognitive and emotional development. Dragonfly Designs instructors are college-educated, many with advanced degrees in the arts, and love working with kids!

Our goal is to create a calming, inclusive space where children can unplug from technology, connect with others, and feel the freedom to explore their individual creativity. And, did we mention it’s SUPER FUN?! From Jewelry Making & Design and Leatherworking & Metalsmithing to Yoga Mindfulness & Meditation, there is a class theme to appeal to every interest!

  • Minimum: 8 Students; Maximum 12 – 25+ (when possible or deemed necessary, assistant instructors are provided for larger class sizes of approximately 13+ participants).

Facility Needs

  • We can work in any classroom and adjust to available space. Ideally, we like to work in art rooms where children can sit in chairs around 1-2 tables.
  • For specific classes we need access to a water source in the room
  • It’s helpful to have a whiteboard for project explanation. We can bring a small board if not provided by the facility.
  • We begin each day in circle time, so a carpeted area is preferred.
  • Multi-purpose rooms are optimal for Dance, Yoga, and movement classes.
