TESTIMONIAL FROM TWO YOUNG ARTISTS MOM: "Oceanna, you’re amazing and you’ve made a huge impact on our girls’ lives:"
"As a parent of two daughters who have attended Dragonfly’s after-school art studio and summer camps, I can’t say enough about Oceanna’s program. Dragonfly is a den of industry, in the very best way. The children learn about artists throughout history, like Picasso and Frida Kahlo, and then create their own works in the tradition of those artists. The studio is buzzing with energy and inspiration, yet never feels hectic. A deep, palpable calm permeates their learning and creating. I don’t know how Oceanna does it, but her studio embodies the perfect blend of structure and freedom, in which children thrive. Coats and bags are put away in their proper place when the children arrive, and jazz or classical plays on the stereo while the children work. Oceanna addresses each child as an artist, and never dumbs down or over-simplifies her instruction. As someone who experienced art-shaming from a teacher when I was a child, I am thrilled to see my daughters exploring their creativity with confidence and curiosity under Oceanna’s nurturing eye. And it’s fun! There’s plenty of opportunity for fresh air and free time for pursuing their own ideas, taking short walks for inspiration, sketching, or photo-taking.This is experiential, hands-on creative learning at its very best. I wish all children—all adults, too!— could have the experience of attending Dragonfly!"
