About Us

Dragonfly Designs is a full-service in-person and virtual art experience company specializing in corporate team building and events, client appreciation, life’s special occasions and art classes for adults and children. We are a woman-founded, family-owned business based in Northern California. Since 2005, Stacee Gillelen has brought the joy of creativity and art to adults and children across the San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego. Our dynamic team of professional artists guide guests through inspiring, meaningful projects in a variety of artistic mediums.

About This Job

Dragonfly Designs is currently Counselors-in-Training (CIT) for our summer art camps and birthday parties in the San Francisco Bay Area. You’ll gain practical instruction and hands-on experience in leading children in art projects. This is the perfect job for a high school student (ages 16+) looking for a creative, seasonal position! We’ll train you to teach art mediums like jewelry making, tie dye, clay, painting, mixed media, macrame and more to children ages 5-12. Previous art experience is a plus, but not required.

You’ll facilitate relationships and collaboration between students/campers/guests while teaching them skills they can use for years to come. Our goal is to create a peaceful and inclusive space where each child is empowered to make truly unique treasures by hand. 

Who You Are

  • You have an interest and passion for working with children and teaching in a creative setting.
  • You are engaging, fun, energetic and able to create meaningful connections with your students allowing for a positive learning environment where creativity can thrive.
  • You have leadership qualities and feel comfortable speaking in front of a group.
  • You have an artistic sensibility and enjoy hands-on art.

Next Steps

After we’ve reviewed your application and decided to move forward we will select those individuals that we believe are a good fit for our programs and invite them to a Zoom interview to learn more about you! From there you’ll spend time alongside our staff at our SSF Studio to get a hands-on understanding of what it’s like to work for Dragonfly Designs prior to our final job offer.
