Dragonfly Fine Arts Camps

School-year arts-integrated, child-centered, half-day camps for self-sufficient 3½ – 6 year olds (approximately preschool through kindergarten). Themes focus on building cooperation and confidence through play and exploration. (Read more about our teaching philosophy.)

All classes take place in and around our classroom in the historic University Heights building in Seattle’s University District. See our Location page for details and directions.

Campers must be able to use the restroom and open their snacks independently.

Fee: 235 per 6 week session. All supplies included.

Fun learning while singing along!Join us as we take the bus all over for a magical musical tour! Campers begin each day with games and singalong songs that help grow their voice and expand and stretch the borders of their creativity! We’ll launch from the song Wheels On the Bus and ride round and round our own Academy town, inspired, in part, by Richard Scarry’s Busytown! Then, we'll work together to bridge together music, art, and even theatre skills. All roads lead to a last-day showcase performance!
