About Your Host

MISSION At Dragonfly Designs we enable creativity through holistic art education. VISION 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. Because there’s no better time for cognitive retention than learning a language at a young age, we offer classes and camps taught in Mandarin and Spanish to children ages 5 – 13. An understanding of art and language expands worldviews and fosters an appreciation for cultural diversity. Meditative focus is a natural part of craft making, and we strive to bring this mindset to all of our full day camps by including an hour of yoga to encourage mindfulness and movement. For adults, we know that art is powerful and can express what words often cannot. For many, creating art provides a powerful experience of relaxation leading to a reduction in stress, anxiety, and worry. We all bring something to the table and we welcome feedback. To that end, you can always reach out to us at stacee@dragonflyfun.com with any comments, questions, or if you’d like to hear more about our programs.
