Since 2005, Dragonfly Designs has been sharing the joy of art and jewelry making with our community in the San Francisco Bay Area. The aim of our family business is to enable children’s creativity through holistic art education.
We believe that artistic expression is crucial to healthy development. Art should be an engaging, tactile, and rewarding experience. Our goal is to create peaceful and inclusive spaces where each child is empowered to make truly unique treasures by hand.
Also, because there’s no better time for cognitive retention than learning a language at a young age, we offer art classes, jewelry making classes, art camps, and more taught in Mandarin and Spanish to children age five to teenagers. An understanding of art and language expands worldviews and fosters an appreciation for cultural diversity.
Our full day Jewelry Making, Art Exploration, and Textiles camps also include an hour of yoga to encourage mindfulness and movement. Meditative focus is a natural part of craft making, and we strive to bring this mindset to all of our events.

Afterschool Enrichment Sessions
- We offer class sessions in conjunction with each school program’s afterschool calendar.
- All materials are brought to the school along with the instructor and are included in the cost of the class. We can collect our own materials fees if desired.
- Minimum: 8 Students Maximum 12 – 16 (assistant instructors are provided for class sizes above 12 participants)
- We can work in any classroom and adjust to available space, but ideally, we like to work in rooms where children can sit in chairs around one to two tables
- It’s helpful to have a whiteboard for project explanation, but we do bring our own smaller version if the school facility does not have one available.
- We begin each day in circle time, so a carpeted area is ideal
- Multi-purpose rooms are preferred for Dance, Yoga, and movement classes
- Outdoor space for Organic Gardening classes is optimal
- Our instructors are college educated, many with degrees in the arts
- All employees of Dragonfly Designs are fingerprinted with FBI & DOJ background checks
- All instructors carry current TB tests
