Welcome to Fly on the Wall Art School

Fly on the Wall Art School is an art space with the mission to teach classic art skills in a way that protects and develops the creative voice and style of each student.

A new chapter for Fly on the Wall has begun! Franklin Hagarty and Ethan Hofmayer have become the new owners of Fly on the Wall Art School! We are very excited to carry the torch passed on to us by Susan. We have been students of this art school in the past and we hope to continue to help young creatives find their artistic voice. Together, we have decades of Education and Youth Mentorship experience. We have been shaped by this artistic community and we hope you join us in building up this community even further!

We will be offering new classes, camps, and workshops here at Fly on the Wall so stay tuned for updates on when those are happening!

FOTW COVID Protocols 2021

Summer 2021 Update:

The San Mateo County Health Office has not changed its guidance on “Social Bubbles.” This means that we are still going to have 3 Week Summer Camp Sessions. This is to ensure that we maintain “Stable Groups” of campers for the safety of them and their families. We highly encourage our families to continue to help stop the spread of Covid-19 by practicing social distancing and following quarantine guidelines.

We are continuing to use Plexiglas and paper to create a safe work space. We take temperatures, wear masks when not in the individual work areas, & wipe down all materials. We have replaced serve-yourself popcorn for packaged snacks and have good ventilation. Covid seems to be a built-in course in creative adaptability. Please check in with our website to keep up with any changes.

Please call if you have any questions: new number is 650 713-0751
